Quotes

David: Emma... Will you marry me?
Emma: Won't you wait and see if I get my figure back?
David: If you stay flabby, I promise I'll get flabby as well.
Emma: I wonder if that's the first time anyone's used the word "flabby" in a marriage proposal.
[she kisses him]
David: Emma... I'm Starbuck.
Emma: [whispers angrily] Why are you always scamming? How could you think that a marriage proposal would excuse the fact that you're a father of 533 children? David! God! This... this is no longer your child!

Heartfelt, Emotional, and Comedic
23 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the best movies I've seen. Okay, disagree with me, but hear me out first. I've never understood the desire for children. I don't know why people have kids. And nobody, not even my own parents, have been able to explain to me why. But this film inspired me to become a father one day.

I laughed. It brought me tears three times. I walked away from that movie feeling satisfied, warm, and with a whole new outlook on life. Don't go into this movie expecting the comedy or the drama or the story of the year, because you're not going to get that. What you are going to get is an enjoyable film that will make you smile. And that's truly all that matters. This film is full of love and what it means, and I left loving this film and loving and understanding the desire to have children.

-Jackson
