Stop! In the name of love
7 December 2006 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

Criticizing is very easy. But when we see the thing with more clarity, maybe we can think better the thing what we say about anything... and of course movies. "The Lemon Sisters" is beautiful, i can say is a masterpiece, and no, i'm not crazy. A film can give you fun, screams, tears, laughs... and teachings.

"The Lemon Sisters" give you teachings. Teachings about dreams, childhood, friendship, love and the things that we must appreciate. Besides great music (I love the scene of "Stop! in the name of love! and of course when Franki sing like a drunk woman)the performances of all are delicious. And ... come on ... Diane Keaton!!!! So, don't pay attention to some critics. Read that critics, but please see the movie then. But be sure that movie is a pleasure one. See beautiful movies, like this. And please... stop! in the name of love... before you break my heart.

*Sorry for the mistakes... well, if there any
