When life fell apart, love fell into place.
A woman who comes back to her home town in Smithville, Texas, with her daughter after a very sloppy and painful divorce has to deal with the people in her town.
My god this a long boring movie!!
Not very good.
It was either this or Martha Marcy May Marlene, and my six-year old was still up.
A sappy, vomit inducing sentimental romance but somehow Bullock makes it just about bearable.
Likeable if somewhat predictable typical Sandra Bullock film.
I really enjoyed this film, but most people hate it. I guess I just loved seeing how three generations of women living together all dealt with a man ruining theirs lives basically, more so the wife and daughter. The daughter can be a tad annoying at times, and it can take a long time to get to the ending we all know is coming, but Bullock is fantastic.
Although not a terrible movie, I didn't particularly enjoy it. It starts off promising, and then falls into the trap of being like every other movie out there. Even worse, there's no great romance or sweeping off her feet, and there's no big romance at the end. And the scene between the little daughter and the dad?? Heart-breaking. Being a child of divorce, with a father who left, watching that scene (with no warning that it was coming) almost killed me.
