Don't get your hopes up.
16 December 2012 | by (NW-USA) – See all my reviews

This is not a movie you would like to see or admit you watched. The story was lame and the acting was worse. If the director even tried to make a watchable movie he should be fired. My 6 year old daughter quit watching before the half way mark. Her comment was "Daddy this movie is dumb, do I have to watch it?" Maybe I should point out the acting reminded me of a grammar school Christmas play where the children playing trees make mistakes causing the parents to giggle and laugh under their breath. The hospital administrator was like watching a child actor trying to play the part of an adult. Much like Alfalfa in the old our gang movies. The script was written by someone who if wrote for an animated cartoon show they would be fired. Sorry I just can not find anything positive about the movie at least to the part where we could not watch it anymore.
