Great Family movie
12 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read another review that credited actor for the wife character as Nicole Scipione. This part is played wonderfully by Teri Polo, who for some reason is not even credited in the movie information. Also, I am not sure why this is classified as a comedy-drama. If there is comedy, it is very subdued. I do agree that Cheech Marin even plays his part straight. That is a very nice change. Rebeka Montoya is wonderful as the young lady that befriends Teri Polo's character as is Kevin Hernandez who plays the young boy. However, Priestly and Polo, definitely are strong as the main characters of the movie. They learn that life and love can go on even without children. They also learn to place their life in God's hands, rather than trying so hard to control their own destiny. Oh,and the pilot pig must be given credit. I guess there was one comic moment in the movie. I highly recommend it as a family movie.
