A New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as the possibility of realizing them dwindles.
Maggie's plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant and impossible Georgette. But one daughter and three years later, Maggie is out of love and in a quandary: what do you do when you suspect your man and his ex wife are actually perfect for each other?
There's nothing at all in it. It looks like a children fairy tail with poor characters. The story is predictable, the screenplay is boring, the way actors play is mediocre, the characterization is ridicule. I decided to go see this movie as I've read good reviews on cinema websites and I couldn't help but notice these days people don't really evaluate movies for what they are. In this case, a waste of time and money. As Julianne Moore can still be saved (still, why do good actors accept such poor screenplays?), the movie itself is a low-concentrate of fine sentiments, romantic narrative and some (few) absurd situations which should be funny but they actually aren't. It can easily enter the top 3 worst movies of the year.
