The Story follows Troy, a young man whose beloved wife passes away. The movie opens at her funeral, and Troy, ill-equipped to deal with this kind of grief at this stage in his life, just shuts down. Lost for direction, he receives in the mail a letter his wife wrote him while she was sick, which asks him to build his Aunt Hilda a porch. With nowhere else to turn, Troy drives to where his aunt lives in the desert. There, he meets with his Aunt Hilda, a supporting cast of crazy fun old ladies, and Bobby, a kind of wise cowboy, all of whom make it easier for Troy to find the place within to deal with his grief and move forward, and help open Troy's eyes that his pain is not unique. In the Process, Troy also learns the Difference between "true love" and "love at first sight". Written by anonymous

Never falls flat but does stall at times
27 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nice slant on losing a loved one with an interesting twist at the end that relates to the title. One loose end left out there was disappointing, but enough sharp writing and character development to make it worth while for most who would be attracted to this type of movie in the first place.

My biggest criticism was the pacing. Especially David Gillies' character (Thorton Harper) who looks like he could be Dr. Oz's son. I thought he could have delivered a little more depth to his performance, but Ron Perlman sufficiently picks up the slack. Barbara Hersey's character Hilda started off with a lot of fire but someone dropped the ball and almost let it flicker out. Nice Hallmark ending for those needing a little fluff in your life.
