A Fantastic Film!
25 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a delightful movie. I laughed, I cried, and I recommended it to all of my friends. It reminded me of MOONSTRUCK.

The directing was spot on, and Michelle Danner did an excellent job weaving an emotionally enticing story that really focused on the relationships between the characters.

I was equally impressed with the acting and thought that this was a great role for Jason Alexander. Rob Estes and Brian Drillinger were also great additions to the cast and I found them both really entertaining.

I would highly recommend this movie to anyone out there looking for a great film to discover.
