critics are usually really great writers and uhm... they have to kinda choose a side... and they decided that pointing out everything that was wrong with the film would be the best way to write their reviews, their articles. they're all great articles too, all the bad reviews, really well written. uhm... but *pause* there is a lot of good in the film too... and the film DOES work. and people who see it, enjoy it, and are moved by it. uhm... the most important person it moved for me was my mother, and she's not moved by all my films. but she really liked this one, so, that made me really like it too. *soft smile* so, uh... it's still in theaters this weekend... take your mom.
