This movie, as shown in its DVD cover, is not the child-appropriate movie reviewed here. SAME TITLE, VERY DIFFERENT FILM. The movie cover shown is a French language movie, Le Code a Changé, "a change in the plan", and is **completely inappropriate,** even for teens, let alone 10 year olds as indicated. The movie's setting is a dinner party of friends and acquaintances, where the back stories are their severe marital and family difficulties and, especially, extramarital affairs, including among the dinner's attendees. So, not for children -- unless your aim is clever French repartee laced with expletives and double entendre, where at least the expletives are clearly translated in the English subtitles.

Really sweet show about a married couple who get their priorities in order amidst a life change forced on them. Also engaging and some entertaining music. My 12-year-old daughter and I enjoyed it together and now have purchased it to have in the home.

Pretty sweet - too cloying?

We watched this made-for-tv-movie based on the high review posted here. I think I liked it better than the 9 & 11 yr olds. Our kids reacted to it the way that I remember reacting to some of the old "Hallmark" made-for-tv movies -- fine if you don't mind a little saccarine, but it may irritate the 10 and older crowd.
I learned later that an American Idol singer was one of the stars. Her singing was good. Recommended for fans of the show who might recognize her.
