Great Movie!!!
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie wasn't the greatest but it was great. The characters flowed together nicely and the setting in upstate New York with all of the beautiful snow and scenery made me want to go. The relationships were a little weird but I think that's what made the movie flow so well. The mother and best friend relationship left a lot to be desired. I wish it would have gone into greater detail as to how they met and came to live together. funny how when I watch the movie I feel as though I am a part of it. I was hoping to find out what happened to the two male characters other than getting together and moving to New York. Maybe they should have added another thirty minutes to an hour.
