Quotes

Dr. Beth Noonan: Helen McCormack. Helen came here as angry as anyone I've ever seen. Turns out what she needed was what everybody needs. To feel she belongs somewhere in the world. I guess there are such things as happy endings. If you just stand still long enough to let them happen. Case closed.

Bad writing, editing, sound, and hair
22 February 2003 | by ghigauSee all my reviews

Don't watch this film without the volume control in your hand. The director let the actors whisper exactly half their lines, and the sound technicians did nothing about it. VERY IRRITATING. The bad writing and cliches were delivered surprisingly well most of the time, but you could see that the actors were uncomfortable with a lot of the dialogue. Some scenes were cut to fit the songs rather than having the songs fit the scenes. McPherson's hair wisps came and went at random as the multiple takes must have spanned days -- the wisp would cover an eye, disappear in the next angle, then move behind an ear as the angle returned to the original shot. It became quite comical. The four different stories were tied together by Channing as a psychiatrist. In case you missed the tedious point of each one, she recapped each story's moral into a tape recorder at the end of the episode. Unless you are snowed in, don't bother with this four hour marathon. Half of it should have been left on the cutting room floor, and you can never recover wasted time!
