  1. This joyous film, which confronts pain, loss and transgression with love, wisdom and forgiveness amid inspired humor, has it all.

    In the end, it's simple warmth and sincerity that make this ensemble piece so disarming.
  3. 63
    Strolls from high sentiment to low humor without a stumble, but without reaching any great depth or height.
  4. The cartoonish characters and outsize performances don't make a smooth transition from stage to screen.
  5. Reviewed by: Lael Loewenstein

    Uneven but generally well-acted.
  6. 40
    Satisfying in small ways.
  7. A succession of shrill overacting jobs.
