Excellent drama with comic relief
10 March 2003 | by SNLcutieSee all my reviews

This movie is excellent. If you truly like dramas that get you in the heart with that ever so subtle hint of comedy then this film is definitely for you. BUT you will have to read subtitles if you choose to view this particular movie. Although I found it worth the effort some may not. While Paulette shows 'tough love' and Pauline is just sweet and really gets into that sensitive place inside you. this film shows an excellent lesson along with an entertaining plot. Plus this film is P.G. so it is excellent for families. It is for mild language. I counted 3 not bad at all words in total. So my advice is to see this movie. Take your kids. Take Grandma. Get out the popcorn! An excellent movie overall.
