  1. A fine example of how a character-based story can be so compelling you don't miss the frills.

    When Kinney and Muth share scenes, it's hard not to get caught up.
  3. Crackles dangerously to life whenever Constance (who narrates the film) is on the screen with her father Hank (Terry Kinney).
  4. This likable comedy-drama gets most of its oomph from acting.

    Neither particularly romantic nor especially funny.

    It's a shame, because the actors are so much better than the threadbare material.

    The film's one saving grace is 18-year-old Ellen Muth, who gives one of the screen's most natural, non-Hollywood portrayals of a child.
