  1. In no way is this a serious movie. Still, it's hard to resist.
  2. 63
    So heavy on incident, contrivance, coincidence, improbability, sudden reversals and dizzying flash-forwards (sometimes years at a time) that it seems a wonder the characters don't crash into each other in the confusion.
  3. Ultimately, it's more an emotional hodgepodge than a compassionate look at real human problems.
  4. Sloshes between comedy and drama, never quite hitting stride as either.
  5. Reviewed by: Steve Simels

    To be fair, this could have been worse.
  6. 22
    A swamp of clichés, contrivances, and cheap ham-and-cheese hero sentimentality.
  7. Tries to put your tear ducts in a headlock with a litany of catastrophes.
