How anyone can give a negative review of this film is beyond me. It is a delight to watch from start to finish. It has everything, humour, drama and it is very moving. I have read reviews stating that the film is sexist; I'm sure these so- called 'critics' were watching a different film to me. It is a film about a man's pure love for a woman and if thats sexist, then beam me up Scotty! If you get a chance, please watch this film. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
