Telly at it's best
23 September 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I just adore this movie!!! It is very touching, encouraging, humorous and teaching. The cast was very wisely chosen. In my opinion, they transformed the script perfectly and filled the words with life. Since "Everybody Loves Raymond", I am a follower of Patrica Heaton's. Just her work, that's why I sought out this movie to watch. She played the mother one wishes for. I am glad I stubbled across this little gem on account of Ms Heaton.

At times, it was so sad... How mean and intolerant people can be! I had to shed a tear here and there, but nevertheless, those dialogues were catchy and returned easily back to hilarious.

If I had a kid, I would like it to watch this movie.

There is one thing I didn't get though....As far as I know, and I might be wrong, please bear with me, teachers are underpaid? Sometimes it's even dangerous to be a teacher....Shouldn't they be thankful for every person who wants to be a teacher and even seems fit, despite a handicap?
