Sorry we missed the very beginning of the Movie
14 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. Apart from the very brief nude sequence it was a quality film. I enjoyed seeing Tom Selleck in something different and I agree with the other comment in here that Rebekah Johnson should have gotten more roles. She was great. The story was believable, and I was touched at Tom Selleck's playing of his part. Quite a few sequences were also not unrealistic in the situation of the older man and a young girl combination; and I can't help feeling the movie would have had a more family rating without the very small nude scene I mentioned earlier. Good to see some known faces in the movie apart from Tom Selleck as well. I recommend this movie to anyone who gets the opportunity to view it. Maybe one day it might be available in DVD, that would be great also.
