Rotten: May satisfy those who like their movies to offer life lessons and provide role models.

If you can get past Hayden Christensen being an excruciating whiny douche for an hour, then you'll find yourself with a pretty strong family-centered drama with a lot of well-written characters. We watched this in my screenwriting class, in fact, for its characters; their presence in the plot and demeanors are extremely lucid and purposeful. The movie wouldn't win any awards for originality, but it's a cute one nonetheless.

The bestest drama and emotional story I ever watched. It features all the moving, bittersweet honesty of Terms of Endearment, Field of Dreams and American Beauty.
