“This movie got pretty bad reviews from the Hollywood Hype-mongers. I suppose because it didnu0026#39;t have a lot of flash. All it had was a well-written original story and superb acting with real characters. Anyone who has ever spent time in a small town can identify with nearly all the characters. I could practically name them all in the town I grew up in. Iu0026#39;m sure the only people who would NOT enjoy this movie are the ones who grew up in Hollywood and believe everyone is like them. If thats not you, rent this movie for a truly enjoyable evening. But you might want to bring tissues. Itu0026#39;s a very warm and often funny movie, but itu0026#39;s also very sad in some places. Will Patton is incredible and I honestly donu0026#39;t understand why Alison Elliott hasnu0026#39;t been used more than she has since this movie. Ellen Burstyn was glorious as ever :)”
