I was very disappointed in this film. Actually, I was downright pissed off about this movie, but that's because I loved the book and I felt like the movie completely butchered it. The characters were under developed (it was a shame not to have Alec Baldwin's character more present in the film, especially since they cast the perfect person for that role) and the story line felt rushed. I won't spoil the ending, but it's 100% opposite what happened in the book. If they really wanted to make people cry, they should have stuck with the actually story.

Great movie, with many complex themes. Cameron Diaz reveals herself as an actor, who can do more than one type of role.

This drama is different from others regarding its "attack".. the story goes well.. the director shows the story well... everyone must watch this movie. the movie shows all the characters' concern with the main issue. i love it! i love it as much as i love Julie and Julia - which, for me, give such another different "attck" on drama. i'm looking forward watching this movie again just like what i did on the movie Hardball (with keanu reeves) which until now, it touches me!

this movie was so good and so sad, I found myself crying a lot throughout this movie. I can't even imagine being in Cameron Diaz's charachters shoes. Such good acting by everyone in the movie.

Stop trying to make me cry...

Completely different to the book - which I actually really liked. The film tries too hard to make you cry, with long scenes of the family laughing together, accompanied by heart-breaking music. At times it tried to stick to the book without giving thought to the things it was missing out. For example, the brother barely has a role in the film, yet Anna says at the end that he 'finally gets his life back together' when we haven't really seen it falling apart. Also, she 'finally' finds out what condition the lawyer has, when he's only given one or two explanations. (In the book he gives quite a few). If you're prepared to ignore all its failings and just want a good old cry then you may like this film. And an added bonus is Cameron Diaz who gives a really great performance.
