Deep and touching movie
17 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this movie lot's of times, since the first time i saw it. And I think, that it is very interesting and useful. If you think, that your life isn't perfect and amazing - watch this film - it will help you to understand the happiness of your life.

I like Kirstie Alley. She's good actress but I think, that you shouldn't enough talent to play in comedy, and Kirstie's personality is better opened in dramatic and deep movies like "Suddenly". And in this film Kirstie showed her wonderful actor talent. She is really serious actress.

"Suddenly" shows that you should never be in desperate, even if you think that your life is over. Who can imagine, that life in a wheelchair can be happy and lucky? Marty Doyle showed to everybody, that it is possible to have normal human life in this situation.

People, we should watch such films!
