Simple and predictable but good acting and some good old country wisdom.
29 October 1999 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews



This is heart-warming 'rainy day' entertainment. During the first half I fast-forwarded through some of the slow shmaltzy parts and then started to accept the film for what it was: a story about family struggles and achievements that aims at the heart and not the intellect. Congrats to Dennis Quaid on a fine directing debut. The ending is typically out of the Hollywood 'Officer and a Gentleman' box which thankfully does not detract from the film's positive family values. Worthwhile to watch with other family members who are not expecting a complex plot or sex and action. Have a box of tissues nearby for the tender scenes of love triumphing over adversity.
