Realistic comedy about cancer
18 May 2003 | by (Broadview Heights, Ohio, US) – See all my reviews

I liked the film because it is addressing cancer which is so dark as well as serious to many from the view of the patient himself who has it in a comical way. We see how different people react and how this affects Taylor Darcy (Jonathan Silverman) in the movie, and how he reacts as well. Darcy himself has a kind of sarcastic humour about the whole thing and it seems like he is in denial about it all. The movie does well on developing the nature of the relationships between Taylor and his brother, Lynn Piegi (Natasha Gregson Wagner), and the people in Taylor's periphery who are mostly his doctor, nurses, and other hospital staff. The varying personalities which are typically found in the hospital are represented well also.
