    Why oh why did I watch it? I should have known: a Lasse Hallström film... This film is about learning to forgive people for their past sins and to forgive yourself for your own mistakes yada yada yada...watch the trailer or better yet, read the synopsis. It'll save you 108 mins of your life. The layer of emo-goo is laying on so thick that the slow moving plot almost gets stuck in it. IfWhy oh why did I watch it?

If you've seen more than 50 movies in your life you've probably at least seen one of these. Unless you like seeing the same crap
    regurgitated over and over again I'd suggest you spend your time watching something you haven't seen before

    You can't help but see this movie being crafted out of shards of movies past, seemingly in a cut and paste method. In the hands of a less skillful director, the film could very easily flop, but it doesn't.
  2. The film never realizes its dramatic potential, choosing to take predictable story paths with obvious characters.

    A film is in trouble when, despite the presence of an A-list cast and a well-regarded director, the best thing in it is a partly digitized bear.
