Great movie.....
10 July 2011 | by anlaneSee all my reviews

I finally saw this movie after wanting to see if for years. I disagree with other reviews in regards to having Paul Hogan in the cast. I felt that he played comic relief in the right way in the movie as he often does in his movies. I am not sure how people can say that an Australian transplant was unbelievable when you have people moving and living the American dream every day. It seemed to be a very well acted story about a very commonly held problem. Judge Reinhold was especially wonderful in the part and needs to be given credit for his acting ability as well. This is definitely a hidden gem of a movie that should have been more widely seen and shown.
