Pretty substantial story at times and at others it appeals to over-used cliches. Overall good performances. C+

I finally saw Adam Brody's charm after watching this film. Even though a lot of critics thought that this movie was weak and contrived, I thought it was consistent in its focus and very funny at times. Each character had some sort of purpose, which I liked. And even though the dialogue may sound forced sometimes, it's earnest so I've forgiven it and embraced it. In the end, I was more concerned with the movie's heart--its intent--than the style. Somehow, I managed to care for the characters even if they were well-to-do people. I thought the pacing was pretty good and the running time was reasonable. It may not be a great movie that will be remembered for the years to come but it's a nice movie to watch at night under your blankets.

It is the story of young blocked writer who works in a job he does not like. One day his girlfriend broke up with him and he got depress. He decides to spend a few days at her grandmother's house who was soon to die. During his stay he meets a neighbour family of his grandmother, composed by a young little girl who behaves like older, a teenager stocked in a problem since her childhood and their mother who was suffering cancer. Each of these women will put you in touch with himself, unlock him and make him feel comfortable being by his own again. At the same time, it is helpful for each one of women showing the life from a different perspective.
I found the casting with Olympia Dukakis, Adam Brody, Meg Ryan, Kristen Stewart and Makenzie Vega was perfect, also the soundtrack selection …
