heartwarming,sweet nostalgic film
23 October 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This film has an eclectic cast of characters who could be substituted for many people you know in your own life (the belligerent elderly gentleman,the sweet helpful blonde,the bitter divorcée,the singer who just needs a break,the bitter father(s),the kooky personalities,etc. I would have liked a little more character development of the divorced father. The music was fabulous and I will definitely get the singer's c.d. when out. The film was both heartwarming and poignant and I really enjoyed it. The trailer made me want to see it. Who's the beautiful blonde that attempts to help him cross the street? Kooky, funny, heartwarming,nostalgic film. Sad that this was Alan King's last movie.
