    Be sure to have LOTS of tissues handy, as this one will be sure to get you a little choked up. Great Movie! Paul Sorvino was really good :)

    Smacks of a certain kind of TV movie filled with pious uplift, even as it makes token concessions to contemporary lifestyles.
  2. Plays like a series of well-done but disconnected acting-class sketches, filled with a huge cast of first-rate actors whose careers have all gone into decline.

    All the obligatory plot elements are there. Love and loss, anger and forgiveness, illness and death. But they never flow together to make a coherent story. Instead, they just pop up whenever the script is in trouble. Which is all the time.
