Critic Reviews

    The movie is as schmaltzy as I'd feared, and yet De Salvo does elicit some nice performances from her ensemble cast.

    Rather like listening to Vladimir Horowitz play "Chopsticks."

    Annie DeSalvo, a first-time director and screenwriter, can't escape the made-for-TV feel but does manage to give her cast, mostly once-big names fallen from grace and popularity, flashes of humanity between lessons about various saints and sermons disguised as dialogue.
  4. New York Post

    A soggy cannoli of a domestic dramedy.
  5. 50
    An earnest ensemble weeper I'd at least feel comfortable seeing with my grandmother.
  6. Although DeSalvo performs the miracle of making these characters seem like people we actually know, occasionally her delivery definitely makes us wish we didn't.
  7. Smacks of a certain kind of TV movie filled with pious uplift, even as it makes token concessions to contemporary lifestyles.
