|Fox Searchlight Pictures | Release Date: April 11, 2001||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
In the end, it's simple warmth and sincerity that make this ensemble piece so disarming.
Strolls from high sentiment to low humor without a stumble, but without reaching any great depth or height.
More a grab-bag of loosely connected scenes and lives than a film with a firm sense of direction.
The characters are tired stereotypes, the sentimentality nauseating and the situation comedy way below the standards of the very worst WB or UPN shows.
