Not nearly as bad as rated by other reviewers
20 June 2008 | by (Raleigh, NC) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film twice. While it certainly was not a great picture, it was enjoyable, it was poignant, it was plausible, the young leads were charming, the older man intense. The soundtrack was the biggest minus for this movie, instrumentation harsh & tinny (if that is possible) electric guitar, boiler plate instrumentals would have been better, in my opinion. I've seen much worse. The second time around I paid attention to details I had missed the first time. If I were making the film myself, I would have changed a number of things, but since it has already been made, I have to say I'll even watch it again if it comes around on one of the movie channels I subscribe to.
