Beyond my expectations
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tuned in to this movie just to have something on the TV to clear up the dead air. This movie turned out being really amazing. Just when you think it's going to be cheesy and too much comedy for the subject matter it finds a way of really showing the heartbreaking road to being diagnosed with cancer and moving on after cancer.

Sarah Chalke was amazing. I don't know if the movie would have been as good without her playing the part, many times it was her face and expressions that told the story. It's also a somewhat layered story not just showing what she is going through when she is diagnosed, but also giving us a look into how her husband, her friends, and her family deal with it. Over all fantastic job.
