The Canadian film industry has come along way. While this movie wasn't great, it also wasn't bad. There was a time when most Canadian productions were god-awful and looked it. This movie looked polished and professional. But my main praise goes to writing a story that takes place in Canada, yet it doesn't try to hit you over the head with it, nor does it hide it. Now can you imagine what would happen if Canadians took quality stories based in Canada and did films about them, instead of transplanting the story to somewhere USA? Winnipeg native Nia Vardalos are you listening? Kudos also to a well respected group of American actors who starred in a Canadian movie. It's nice to see it can work both ways.
