A loved movie I've watched dozens of times
I've seen Hope Floats at least twenty times. It's my comfort movie that I watch when I am in the mood to be moved and cry. It's got beautiful moments in it with Sandra Bullock's character, Birdee, talking and then dancing with her dad who suffers from Alzheimer's. The scene when she loses her mother is also very moving, and the heart wrenching scene where Bernice finds out how little her dad really cares about her gives the movie true impact and emotion. There are lighthearted parts between Justin Matisse (Harry Connick, Jr's character) and Birdee (Sandra Bullock). I noticed there are not many good reviews on this. It's all personal choice in what people find moving or like to watch. This movie is a special one to me that is sweet and something to cozy up on the couch and watch when you're wanting something to feed your emotions.
