Rating 7. I just rented this film on DVD because I figured that with a Jolie / Burns duo how could it be that bad. Just as I suspected, it's not that bad, not an instant classic but, not thaaat bad, not as bad as other critics make it sound. It was a cute film that could be lauded just for the attempt to inpire, many films these days don't even attempt inspiration let alone deliver it. This film was well written, well acted, well directed. Many "film" critics didn't like this film. They are probably just jealous because that haven't ever written and sold and seen made anything ever, and they can't stand that Burns an accomplished writer gets to make out with Jolie. Yes this is a fluffy feel good movie, and in many areas implausible but it by no means sucks. I think the critics of this movie have been watching too much "reality TV", suspend your disbelief a little (ok maybe a lot) and this film and it's not so bad.
This is a good film to recommend to your parents who live in Florida.
