What a pleasant surprise!
31 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although I had heard of this film title for quite a while, I never felt inclined to see it as I wasn't a particular fan of any of its cast. However, having asked friends for recommendations for a wholesome film to watch, Corrina, Corrina was suggested, so I decided to give it a go. And how pleased I am that I did! Bearing in mind the subject matter, this movie could have been one of those tearjerkers that leaves you feeling absolutely drained and depressed but I found it uplifting with just the right amounts of levity, tragedy and romance. I am fan of the Fifties music and fashion and this made me feel as though I was transported back to that era. I had a whole rush of emotions watching this, most of which were positive. There are touches in this film which make me feel warm inside - the whole movie radiates warmth. Both Whoopie Goldberg and Ray Liotta (I didn't think he ever played such roles) were great, but the revelation for me was little Tina Majorino! So believable - her laughter so infectious! I've watched this film time and time again and never tire of it! I love it! A very pleasant surprise indeed!
