This is by far one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not because of the actors but the plot. You have a decent young man who joined the military and turned his life around. He decided to continue to serve after 9/11 even though he really didn't want to do it. Also, it was a stretch to believe that he didn't know that there was a problem with his father.
You have a extremely selfish woman who decides that she can't deal being alone and marries someone who needs someone to looks after his kid when he dies. How pathetic. I noticed some people liked the book this was adapted from. Get a life, if the book was the same then I feel sorry for you.
