An alright film with an all star cast
6 March 2004 | by (Mono, Ontario - Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this film to be quite good since it had an all star cast in it. I really liked the storyline plot where Graham Greene was told to go back to Alberta for his mom's funeral but couldn't make it. As a result he was weeks late for it and wanted to stay a lot longer since he felt really bad about missing his mom's funeral, and what was so funny about it was that everyone in the community was coming up with ways to keep him there as long as they can.

However I think this film should have been made as a drama rather than a comedy because when a film like this starts off on a serious note such as someone getting notified that their mother had recently passed away, I think that would be reason enough for a film like this to be considered as a drama.

But......... anyways........... this is why I gave this film a 5 out of 10.
