Excellent date or family movie -- in spite of flaws it's a great movie!
This is a great movie about finding yourself, and love, and forgiveness. It's a great family movie or a great date movie unless your date is cynical or jaded or prideful. Yes, some of the acting could use some help but if you turn off the "movie critic" part of your brain and instead open your heart you'll see why this is a good movie. I saw this movie when I was 17 in high school with my church's youth group. I had felt lost earlier in high school and could identify with the main character. Those that call part of this movie "melodrama" are probably just saying that as an emotional defense mechanism since they might not have felt that type of love before. Open your mind and heart and I think that you'll love this movie too. Peace.
