Bad, weak, and other negative words
21 March 2013 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I wanted to watch a nice comedy movie so I picked this from my watch list. Kate Hudson, comedy.. sounds nice, I expected something cute, I didn't read the plot before watching. So it turned out to be a cancer movie.. OK,, that works for me two. But somehow, it was hanging in the middle, it's not comedy, not funny and not dramatic nor touching. Acting is bad. but you don't expect Oscar performance in a light comedy, right! .. anyhow.. most of the story looks like unnecessary load of details.. troubles with the father, troubles with the mother, troubles with the friends, love the doctor, have cancer! .. it's like collecting any problem that can come in someone's life and adding it randomly. The usual "I have cancer so I'm mean to everyone" with Kate Hudson's acting is just not catchy! .. when she tries to do heavy dramatic moments she ends up looking very unnatural and unreal. Fantasy! dreaming once and having three wishes blah blah blah .. not really fantasy but not really realistic..

Not the best massage for cancer patients. I recommend you NOT to watch the movie. If you like good quality movies or even a cute flick for fun, this is neither.
