He's thrown for a loop with he learns that Bella, an elderly neighbor who's his family's closest friend, has but a few months to live.

wonderfully surprising
25 October 2004 | by (houston, texas) – See all my reviews

I had hoped this would be a light romantic film and the critic's reviews were certainly encouraging. Still it seemed like it might be a made for television movie, simple and sweet but nothing extraordinary. It was wonderfully surprising though. I thought the scheme to marry to make the mother happy would be unbelievable but they pulled it off. It actually had a very realistic touch to the writing. And the direction was superb, very subtle, again keeping the character's realistic. All of the cast were terrific but Scott Baio, Kristen Minter and Rosemary Prinz were incredible. Definitely a sleeper, very heartwarming and incredibly well done! One of the greatest unknown romantic gem's you'll ever find.
