It's a small film, and a far from perfect one, but it allows her (Theron) to extend her range as no previous role has done.
Nice to look at but too calculated and clichéd to resonate beyond its surface slickness.
If the movie works on its own insipid level, it's because of high-gear star power -- 50 times the captivator Dennis ever was, Theron is terrific at creating adorable intimacy with little help from the script or director and exudes more guileless élan than any of the film's many puppies.

The sort of movie that seems to exist for no good reason except to keep the studio's pipeline filled with filmed product.
Sara is supposed to be an adorable screwball with a fatal disease. Ms. Theron certainly gets the adorable right. With a comic style that's close to unerring, she not only deserves better than this junk but the very best.
