Terrible Parenting

I think this movie has a terrible message for parenting style. Birdee, the mother, is selfish, she does not support her daughter during this traumatic experience, and deals terribly with her depression by hurting her entire family. She does not appreciate all her mother has done for her and her daughter. Birdee is also completely unaware of what her daughter is going through at school and does not inquire as to why Bernice was upset afterwards.

Waste of Time

This movie was just stupid. I hated all of the characters. There's really nothing left to say other than Sandra Bullock can't do a half decent southern accent.

I cried so hard....it was such a lovely movie

Get a box of tissues ready, because you'll need them when Birdee goes to visit her father's nursing home. This movie is at times funny, sad, and touching. I didn't find that there was anything that would be considered "bad" in it, although younger children might not understand some of the stuff about Alzheimers and why Birdee and her husband divorced.
