I started watching this movie because I was curious about how trite and formulaic it could get. While it IS trite and formulaic, it's not as bad as I expected. There was the "Great Denial" scene, the "I Don't Belong In Treatment" scene, and the "Family Confrontation" scene, as well as the character that we all root for who doesn't make it. While there is the standard "Happy Ending", there are a few unexpected bumps. All is not "Happily Ever After". After years of supporting a drunk wife 'for the sake of the kids' the husband admits he has found someone else. But, our heroine prevails, and stays sober. Not a great movie, but all in all, not too bad.
