  1. 67
    Had Williams chopped away more pointedly at the rambling script, he might've had something memorable.
  2. Hard-core chick shlock, weakened by odd shifts in tone and a slack pace, but elevated by a luminous performance by Natalie Portman.
  3. 38
    The Wal-Mart of cinematic soap operas. One-stop shopping for your emotional movie needs.
  4. Reviewed by: Sean Means

    Recycled "Steel Magnolias."
  5. 22
    A swamp of clichés, contrivances, and cheap ham-and-cheese hero sentimentality.
  6. Tries to put your tear ducts in a headlock with a litany of catastrophes.

    This is one of Natalie Portman's best movies. However,it is a little silly. But I still highly recommend you see it. The soundtrack is great too. Don't miss it. Expand
