Smarty Review: Thumbs Up! I really enjoyed this movie. I found it to be a very touching story. From start to finish, I was invested in the characters. I am not sure I would take my husband to see it, but, it is a great movie to see with my girlfriends.
I definitely will be buying the soundtrack to this movie!
