Quotes

Dr. Alex Tremor: [talking to self in mirror, shaving] You ended up skating in the park witha patient. It's class countertransferance. You allowed her to manipulate you into a vulnerable - nevermind unprofessional - situation where she controlled you. This is freshman psychology, Alex.
[cuts chin]
Dr. Alex Tremor: Oh, oh, good! Oh, good! Good! Dr. Tremor, don't blow a graet career on a cute piece of ass. You keep your dick in your pants, your id in check, and you remember we have a mission in this world.

nice. and nothing more
16 July 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

few drops of fairy tale. few clichés from classic romantic comedies. Demi Moore in a role with high potential and decent solutions. different family/personal crisis. solutions who remind old truth. nothing new. but a nice story about magic, expectations, true love. useful after a long work day. and for the fans of Demi Moore. boring for the predictability. because the few ornaments not are so attractive for ignore an old story, sweet, pink, lovely but far to be great about dreams and their clash with reality, compromises and the happiness as result of self definition. the different stories are a not bad spice. and the performances are far to be bad. but , after its end, the strong feeling - it deserves be better- is the basic gift from this version of fairy tale.
