Two sisters, plus a dead mother, a remarried father, and a hostile step-mother. The sisters, each in her way, have perfected the art of losing. The elder, Rose, is an attorney, responsible, lonely, with a closet full of shoes. The younger is Maggie, beautiful, selfish, and irresponsible. Her drunken behavior gets her tossed by her step-mother from her dad's house; worse behavior gets her tossed from Rose's apartment. Then, while searching in her father's desk for money to filch, Maggie finds an address; the past and the future open up to her and, with any luck, may open to her sister as well. Written by

Guys, if you have a girlfriend, take her to see this film. If you don't take your mother or sister. If you still don't have a lady friend to take and see this film with you take yourself and learn something important and heart warming about the story of love, learning and friendship. I was one of three guys in the audience and I have to say I walked away feeling that it is never to late to make good decisions and everyone of every age and sex has something important to contribute. The casting was excellent, the laughs were sincere and those moments where the knot in your throat gets tighter are the real emotions that we all feel. This is honestly a well constructed story that flows off the screen with excellent performances by Cameron Diaz, Tony Collette and the fabulous Shirley MacLaine. Everyone that performed in this film made it complete and the feel good movie of the year!
