What art movie
2 May 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I am amazed this is getting praise. I can't understand what anyone sees in this movie. The poster makes it look like an arty drama, but there is nothing artistic about this. The directing was boring, the acting - besides Allison I guess

  • was


bad, and the story was horribly put together. They tried to show the relationship between a woman and her father in law...fine, good idea. But do a good job

with it at least. The dialogue was awful, the characters weren't developed at all, and the plot turned into a Disney movie, with Mr. Scrooge coming out of his hermit existence to save the day. And I don't by the Fathers sudden change into seclusion either. This was just an amateur independent movie that has become way overrated.

Good day, Sir. 2/5
