The shaky refrigerator in Grace's parents' apartment has at least one easy fix: level the feet/rollers. The bigger problem may be either a blower motor or perhaps a compressor mount. See more »

Saw Falling For Grace in Washington DC.
6 August 2007 | by susieitalia88See all my reviews

I went to Washington DC to see Falling for Grace, and I just want to say how much I enjoyed this movie. It was sweet and funny and I really loved it.

All of the different stories in this movie were good and interesting. I loved Grace and her family, all the scenes with them were really funny and touching. I really liked Margaret Cho and DB Wong's characters in this, they were some really cute scenes with the 2 of them. And what can I say about Gale Harold, he is great as always. It was so nice to see him in such a lighthearted comedy, so unlike all of his other movies and TV shows. He is not only tall and handsome, but he plays a really regular guy who just happens to be rich and successful. I loved his character.

I would really recommend this movie, I saw it twice and hope it is released nationally so that I can see it again. Go and see it this summer, you will not be disappointed.
