Well done, well paced. Read all of the books. Really glad to see it brought to life. The only problem was with "Grandma" who was too young and not eccentric enough and too glamorous. Everybody has character anticipation when the book moves to the screen. Katherine Heigl was perfect for the part. The movie flowed and hung together. The characters were funny and unique, easily likable and memorable. There was chemistry between the characters, that was obvious. Compared to the long list of throw-away movies flooding the market these days, it was like a breath of fresh air. I always like movies about Jersey, and this one a great one. It didn't take itself too seriously, and portrayed the area, the accents, the locals the eccentricity to a tee. An easy movie to watch and enjoy.
