Good movie, bad title
7 December 1998 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

If you're someone who likes films with a leisurely pace, real emotions, and characters with whom you can relate, then I have little doubt that this film is for you. However, this film may prove to be too talky for many people...there are many scenes where the two stars are sitting around talking, while NOTHING else is happening. Whether or not that is a good or bad thing is up to you. Personally, I thought that it was perhaps too slow at times, but in the end, I was glad that I took the time to watch it. It's a refreshing change to watch a movie that actually seems real. It's just too bad that the filmmakers used such a LONG (albeit accurate) title.
