When someone is suffering from acute neutropenia (a common low white blood count following chemotherapy), as is the stated case after Sarah is rushed to the hospital upon collapsing, she would be kept in an isolated environment and her family would not be free to just run into her room off the street and collapse onto her bed, hugging her. At the very least, they'd be gloved, gowned and masked to guard against the spread of infection to the patient. See more »
This movie was billed as a romantic comedy, but it's really a drama, and it was so much better than I expected! Redemptive and thought-provoking, this movie raises questions about if women and men can be friends without romantic undertones, and includes themes of forgiveness and living life fully. Meg Ryan is always real and lovable, and Adam Brody is a great counterpart. It's so great to see him as a leading man. I loved him in The O.C., but hopefully the bulk of his career is ahead of him. Scenes between him and the grandmother were hilarious. Very well directed. Definitely one to see with your friends and discuss over coffee afterwards--don't take your parents.
