I really enjoyed this movie! The characters were believable and well- acted. And Eric Mabius - what a hunk! Seriously, whoever did the cover to this movie needs to go back to photography school - they didn't do him justice at all.
For people who found it boring, I believe it's because they expected the movie to be only about the romance between the two leads. However, it is about more than just the romance - it's about the heroine taking her life back after she gets cheated on by her husband. So there is romance, but there are plenty of scenes without him in it, as well.
The only things I would complain about is that I think 58 was too old for the heroine, and it wasn't really explained why he liked her. I was thinking more of like a Sandra Bullock, who is now 50 but looks 40 and could look closer in age to Eric. Maybe its the fact that, although Eric was 31 at the time, he looked a lot younger. And I wish I could have seen the attraction more from his perspective. He does an amazing job of showing the chemistry, but she doesn't particularly exude chemistry in return - so I'm wondering why he liked her so much. Guess I have to read the book now!
