a heartwarming film with a beautiful moral message
In a world where profit goes before ethics, and CGI goes before story, it is nice to watch a comedy drama that is not superficial.
This film is all about community, love and compassion, and making a positive difference in this world that impacts and benefits the people around you.
Renée Zellweger, Harry Connick Jr. and J.K. Simmons are a pleasure to watch as always, and the lesser known actors such as Siobhan Fallon are excellent too.
If you want to watch a heartwarming film with a beautiful moral message about human values and what really matters in this world, this film will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and remind you what life is all about. For those who prefer blowing things up, watch something else.
I haven't seen a decent comedy drama with such inspiring human values since Sweet Home Alabama. (and guess what, I just checked and screenplay writer C. Jay Cox was behind them both!) LOL Is there really only one screenwriter out there who can write romantic comedy with compassion and community at its core? In my opinion, the world would be a much better place if these values were the focus of Hollywood.
This is a wonderful film which deserves much more than the rating it has.
