Better than I expected
19 April 2004 | by (Susquehanna,Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I never got the chance to see the movie while it was in the theaters but I bought the DVD as soon as it came into the stores. I have been a big fan of Charlotte Church since I first heard her "Voice Of An Angel" CD. I was hesitant about her performance as an actor because I didn't want to witness her doing something less than brilliant. I was very pleased. Her acting ability is fabulous. She is definitely a multi talented performer. Bravo Charlotte.

I also loved the story line and scope of the movie. It made me laugh, cry and applaude several times through the movie.

I am very pleased that I bought the DVD. I watch it several times a month.
