Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: One of the strongest things in the film is Ms. Masterson, a magnetic, wildly defiant actress with so much energy she often seems to be bursting at the seams of her role.
Fresh: The movie left me wishing its sterling cast -- including a radiant Jessica Tandy -- had been better served.
Fresh: Tandy is at her sparkling best as the endearing old story-teller. Bates is also terrif in a funny and sympathetic turn. Director Jon Avnet, in his feature film debut, gets first-rate work from the featured performers.
Rotten: [A] clunky, fraudulent, yet apparently crowd-pleasing laugh-and-tear-jerker.
