I'm a guy, and as such, chick flicks aren't my forte. However, having watched this movie with my family, I can say it's not half bad. Geena Davis is an intriguing actress. She always has a decent, good-natured way about her characters, and that really shows through in this film. It's an effective story about coping with family issues in an Italian-American family. Davis' title character has to deal with raising a newborn without the support of the child's father, and that throws everything in her life into a tailspin.
I wouldn't exactly say it's a memorable work on Davis' resume, but it's a quality movie none the less. I'd recommend it as a family movie, more for the parents than the children.
