Very very smart
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Kelly, always have, always will. I nearly fell off the couch when it all came together and I was made to understand the real truth. Man, oh man do I get this! Anyone with a drunk in the family will get this. Is the writer a man or woman? Because if it is a man - thank-you. If it was a woman- go sister! I wish more TV movies would treat their audiences with the same degree of intelligence instead of talking down to them, I like that it made you work and gave you a lot to think about after. I would give it a ten except the music seemed like it belonged in a different film. I really loved all the characters in the rehab though- they were so funny.
