Chick Flick
23 June 2004 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful movie. Very poignant and touching. Some of the shots are the kind that will always stick in your head as you think back on movies you have seen. Wonderful framed!

The acting was superb. Never do you think that you are watching actors on a screen. You get so wrapped up in the story that the characters come to life and you feel as if you are sharing in their joy and sorrow.

However, be forewarned that it is something of a chick flick. Take a box of tissue and a bowl of ice cream and get a hug after watching it. If you don't like dramas that make you cry, don't see this film. Not that men won't like the film as well. But a person who loves action flicks and nothing else will be bored to tears watching this film.
