A sticky-sweet stomach-turner
5 February 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A mess of nauseating sentimentality which does not even succeed in being funny, this story of a woman who makes a deal with Death, trading ten years of her own life for the survival of her son, is too much awash in candy-colored cheesiness to wring any tears from its most outrageous plays for pathos.
