I like the semi-eccentric guardian. He is like the father JJ never had. I like JJ's relationship with Sophie, it's was pure; full of love and care for each other, what every romance should be. I like the scene where he knocked the abusive woman unconscious and then placed an iguana there, that really was a good idea. I like the fact Rebecca let go of her son, and learned to love JJ as his own person, not a body to fill a void. I especially like the fact Noah loved "Reb" so fully, that he saw it enough reason to love JJ as his own. It is a beautiful and timeless story of love, if you can get past the human tendency to be critical of anything dispensed to a mass of people. Though I may not be the most eloquent or know much of film directing, I do know movies are made mainly for entertainment, enlightenment, or tradition. I believe a film only needs to leave a person a little more fulfilled than when they first saw in order to be worthy of viewing, and I am more fulfilled every time I watch it.
