Good lighthearted movie that displays family values
8 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good script, some corny lines but overall well written, directed and produced. Good cinematography. The movie most of the time is filmed with beautiful scenery in the background.

The movie displays how adults tend to manipulate each other even after they fall in love. This movie shows how the background of each individual has an effect on their adult life. It shows how children from adverse backgrounds can make something of themselves but the attitude of their parents has a very serious impact on their adult life and their interaction with the ones they love. Good story. Good acting. The actors embed themselves into their roles.

The relationships in the O'Hara family are very interesting and they tend to get a little complex. The divorced mother demonstrates that lack of education allows her to use her body as oppose to her brains to obtain what she needs in life. Where the step mother embraces the husbands children as her own the mother walks away from the children so to spite her former husband.

Good movie that demonstrates the realities of today's life.
