Incredible
4 September 2004 | by (Palisades Park, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

When I watched the previews for this movie i could already tell thatt it was going to be incredible. This movie is one big emotional roller coaster. It gave you everything a movie should. You no when you watch a movie and after its finished you want to go out into the world and be a better person. This movie gives you that. Kirstie Alley gives an incredible performance in this film. She made me feel as if i was in the movie and she made you feel all of her emotion(especially when she fell asleep on the bus trying to go to work and the bus driver wouldn't take her back, she made you feel sad and thats what I like about actors like that. That whats so special about this movie.
