Cliché and passé, but still meaningful in certain ways
18 October 2008 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Similar to Quill (2004), this film involves a pet dog, giving the audience a hint of what will come as the ending to this film. Several scenes have been deliberately set up as tear-jerker scenes, very much similar to Quill (2004).

First time viewers...(read more) who have not watched Quill (2004) may find this film touching and emotional. Veteran viewers of films of this particular genre will see it instead as cliché and passé.

While the deliberate tear-jerker elements may somewhat contribute to the downfall of this film (leading to 7 instead of 8 stars), the meaningful moral behind the film with regards to balancing family relationships vs. personal dreams/careers cannot be depicted any better.
