When Henry's secretary pours his coffee the first time he comes back to the office, she tells him to say "when" and start pouring the milk. It immediately comes to the top but she continues to pour. Next you see a close-up of the cup with her pouring even more in the cup but it's not at the top. See more »
You see that man over there? That lady over there. He used to be her husband. Who's she kidding? The damage has already been done.

I keep reading about how "sappy" and "predictable" this film is. This is true, so I will tell you now, if you hate those types of films then this is not the film for you.
But if you miss seeing movies that you waited for the happy ending you knew was coming, then you will not be disappointed. There are so many movies that don't end so happily nowadays, but remembering the times with movies that had a character who had to learn a lesson but got something more in the end (eg. "It's a Wonderful Life") I couldn't help but enjoy this movie.
I highly recommend it, the acting is fantastic, the story is touching, and knowing what it's like to go through hard times (my own dad had to go through some rehabilitation) then this movie hits it home. I suggest it if you agree with the points above, but it's not for everyone.
