Audience Member The person who wrote the synopsis below obviously did not see the movie! I give this movie 5 stars. It's full of wonderful music, it's well acted and well performed. The writing it top notch. It's got humor and a heartfelt message. It's quirky and creative and a great, refreshing change from the Hollywood model. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Well!! Here is one of those absolutely wonderful little films that I am always in search of. It was cute, quirky, entertaining, warm and enjoyable. It had plenty of familiar faces to boot. This was right up my alley (as they say, and I never knew why..lol) Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Pic is short on originality and substance, but long on charm, which helps to excuse some of its more gratuitously saccharine moments. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Faye Dunaway is an all time talented actress. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A wonderful movie. There should be more like this one made. Great ukulele music. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
