Exactly as it should be...
1 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clearly I am not the target audience on this one... and I will cop to the fact that I do know and love the actress/writer... so one can probably discard my opinion as biased... but the truth is, this was not really a movie made for me. I gave a copy to my niece... who now has every line memorized. She gave it to my other niece for Christmas who is now old enough to appreciate it. They have shared it with friends. My mother loves it. Her words "finally something for the kids that doesn't force them to grow up too fast." The movie is an intended family piece about love and insecurity and hopes and dreams. To slander it... to have any issue with it as a movie... or a creative endeavor... or to even simply state that you don't like it, well... then... you would have to be something of a puppy kicker. It is exactly as it should be... and knowing that, you can't not like it.

If you pulled this one off the shelves and were so impassioned to go online and write a comment about it, good or bad... well, you're either 14 or you need a life.
