Great film for all ages! The characters were believable and the cast chosen was perfect. This is a film that everyone can associate with in some way. There were both funny and heartfelt moments throughout. These days it seems like if you want to go see a movie with your kids your only choice is an animated film. While these are good it is nice to see a film with real actors and real life situations that you can take your family too! It gives families an opportunity to talk about these family situations that come up in real life. For that reason alone this film should do extremely well. Add in the great film work and wonderful acting along with the well written script and this piece of work should be a hit!
