Heartwarming, But Not a Repeat
7 July 2014 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on Netflix, as many made for TV movies are featured in their watch online section. I like Lacey Chabert and the plot sounded interesting.

I felt the pace of the movie was very uneven. It seemed far to slow in places and far to fast in others. The relationships built between the characters that should have blossomed over 6 weeks (the time-line of the story) happened too swift. It was like blocks of weeks were just missing and no background information of those days was given.

At times I couldn't tell when something was taking place. However, the story itself was charming. The idea behind the story, some of the lines, and the actors were nice. I kept striving for more emotional connection from the adults, but I didn't really get it.

It was a great story, and I felt it could have been told better, but it as show that did make me cry at the end, pushing the rating up from below average, and it is interesting enough to pass the time.
