Quotes

Manny Singer: Corrina, can I talk to you for a minute? Look, whatever you may believe in is fine for you, okay? Your heaven is fine for you, but Molly's mother was an atheist and so am I, and I don't want you telling her that her mother is somewhere she isn't.
Corrina Washington: Yes, Mr. Singer. I'll just continue to tell Molly her mother is in the bathtub.

Thoughtful family story
17 February 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Thoughtful family movie. Makes you aware of how and why we like people.... for who they are, the total person, rather than exterior physicality. How and why we care for someone is the result of trust and liking that person. And having that person in your life, completes who you want to be.
