A Train Wreck - I couldn't look away
19 January 2013 | by (Loveland, Colorado) – See all my reviews

This might have been a really cute, feel-good movie just like the rest of the Hallmark brand. BUT, the characters or caricatures in this case are so badly drawn that they aren't even believable as humans. The story line could have done with a lot fewer pratfalls and devices to carry it along. The idea that the woman is leaving a fifteen year marriage to an extremely wealthy man with nothing is simply laughable. In the end, when the epiphany comes, it is impossible to believe that this simpering, vapid shopper is even capable of an original thought.

The writers do a great disservice to women everywhere when they portray us as such pathetic creatures, totally dependent on some man's identity.
