A fairly well movie
24 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I liked this movie a lot. I think that Selma Blair did an excellent job in this movie. And the drinking parts were not over exaggerated at all, if anything under exaggerated. You can not cure a woman that addicted to alcohol in one weekend, someone like that would take probably at least 3 months. I didn't really like how the boy acted like none of it was his fault, it was all hers, and she was ruining his life. He really needed to grow up.

i give this movie a 8/10
