Charming and engaging, NOT for weak-minded action nuts.
This movie was a surprise to me. Tuned it in on HBO and enjoyed the entire movie, laughing out loud at several surprise parts. The characters run the gamut of emotions, and those who did not enjoy this movie never took the time to gauge the feelings of the characters involved. Ellen Pompeo's character is fabulous, Dustin Hoffman's whole demeanor shows a father's grief, but in his own way.
I highly recommend this movie to those who take a little time to read the characters, and who don't expect the director and writer to spell it all out for them.
