Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Would be a lot more fun were it a trashy Troy Donahue-Diane McBain vehicle ground out by Warner Bros. in 1960.
Rotten: Cast of newcomers is appealing, but this small-town melodrama is so old-fashioned and out-of-touch with contemporary youth that it feels as if it were made the same time that its story is set, in 1957.
This was a great movie!
don't believe the reviews-this movie is adorable!
I seriously can't believe how low people are scoring this movie. It's a perfect romance with serious family issues, societal concerns and believable characters. Most importantly-I could actually respect the characters in real life, even after the mistakes they make. It's not tawdry, it's not cheesy, it's not stupid.
This is a good movie with a great storyline and an excellent cast. I've watched it over and over and over. It's wrapped itself around my heart. Don't miss out! It'll leave you feeling like you want to find that special someone or appreciating them more if you already have!
Inventing The Abbotts
Overall a good film. How do we see ourselves, does it fall in line with what our family name means to us. How do our aspirations, our wants and desires frame us? A very good movie.
