I saw this movie last Monday in a sneak preview. Although i was somewhat surprised by the combination of the director (Wes Craven) and the cast (Streep, Estefan, Basset), i liked the beginning of it. But at the time the two boys helped 'mum' through her audition, the one after the other film-cliche got launched(which caused hilarious scenes in the theater i was in). Woman loses husband, woman meets another man (okay it didn't quite work out for her...). A little sideline: Mother of a little afro-american kid doesn't trust her boy's white teacher but changes her mind. Boys start worrying, mother holds her head up high and succeeds. It was mainly the way the story was told, that bothered me. The acting was overall good, but the actors were caught in a very limited screenplay.
