A Feel-Good Movie ... with Substance
13 February 2002 | by ccpapSee all my reviews

There are so many so-called "Feel-Good" movies that come out, but most rely on Big Stars and Expensive Marketing. This, however, was a movie made by a relative unknown, trying to break in to "The Business", with a limited budget & no Big stars. What the outcome was is a movie that many will relate with ... old friends that reunite for a friends wedding; and, on their trek to seemingly losing their friendships, rediscover why they were friends all along. It is unfortunate that this movie couldn't get wider distribution. The writing was genuine, sweet and touching, while keeping on the story line. Mr. James must have had some special relationships while growing up in Dallas. Bravo!
