      Susan R A fun humorous family film with themes of love, redemption, and coming of age. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable, if predictable, film. Love Craig Ferguson, so it's worth the watch just for him. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review michael t This is a fun and engaging story. It's not primarily a comedy, rather a family drama with a light tone. Craig Ferguson did a good job with the script and as the lead character. Charlotte Church, as the daughter, has a beautiful voice and plays the character just right. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review michael m A sweet and charming story that almost becomes great, I'll Be There is mainly held back by the fact that Craig Fergusson is not a very good director. He's an extremely charming leading man, and a decent enough writer clearly pulling from real life experiences with addiction and music, but as a director his style is fairly pedestrian and this makes what could be a great film into a "pretty good" film. Still, it is a pretty good film, and that's because the story is still good and the characters are good and they're all performed well. I've always known Ferguson as the late night clown so to see him give a more sensitive performance and give it well is surprising, but he pulls it off. The story of second chances and unknown families has been done before, but there's enough unique elements to make it work. It's charming and likable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member About forgiveness and second chances. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Great film. Jemma Redgrave is fantastic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Ray Bennett Hollywood Reporter In a story close to her real life, Charlotte Church has no great stretches to make and she handles lines and movement with the aplomb of the outstanding concert performer that she is. Jun 24, 2003 Full Review Neil Smith BBC.com An ill-advised vanity project that will do little to salvage its star's sullied reputation. Rated: 2/5 May 20, 2003 Full Review Roger Moore Tribune News Service Hasn't a bloody laugh in it. Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 29, 2021 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon Rated: 3/5 Jun 21, 2003 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com This movie is a light romp and a little different from your typical romantic comedy, because most of the relationship building is between the father and daughter.
