User Reviews

Better than expected :)
24 October 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I almost didn't watch the movie because I saw the reviews of others here on IMDb. In the end I decided to try it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Sure, the story has been done before, and in the end it may not be the most realistic, but that's not why you should want to watch this movie anyway. It's a happy, feel-good movie about following your dreams that, when you finish watching it, leaves you with a smile on your face. I recommend this to anyone with a bit of extra time who just wants to watch a relaxing, cheerful movie like me (a 21 year old girl XD) or for anyone who wants a nice, clean movie to watch for or with their children. Enjoy!
