Fun for all ages and sexes
5 September 2006 | by marcus_DfSee all my reviews

I'm a 29 years male but still found this movie one of the better ones I've seen lately. I must say I'm really surprised. It touches your heart and u really feel joy and pain with these two people like I very rarely feel watching movies. Seldom have I laughed so much in a movie without jokes. U can tell its a director that knows what hes doing. So even though older women will get the most out of this movie, don't think for a moment the rest of us cant enjoy it.

So don't be afraid to say, hey guys, lets go and watch Heartbreak Hotel! And any1 with a mother, buy a ticket as a present and get her to the movies right this moment!
