Too shallow to be taken seriously.

When you can see the end of the movie within one minute of the beginning, you know you are in for a boring ride. With shallow and contrived conflicts of family illness which ebbed and flowed perfectly with plot device predictability and characters that were so two dimensional, theynwould have been better written as cartoons, I cannot give this movie a good rating even though I agree with its sentiment. It undermines itself with its lack of reality. It should take so much sentimentality tomhave one see the err of their ways.

Kevin Rocks!!

Cute movie. Limited parts for CLoris Olympia and others. Held together by “Joe and his mother in law with Alzheimer’s “ Kids needed more time to develop their acting skills. Great to see Kevin again and able to work with such great actors
