Movie Review by James
February 21st, 2009

Real and charming

Pretty warm and funny movie.

As several other great movies showed recently, this one is also about making choices in life, finding love and happiness. And sort of presents the same idea that it's all about better understanding yourself, your real feelings and desires and following them. This may lead to new mistakes, of course. But bounding ourselves with patterns and habits created by us, our past and our society can be pretty much another mistake.

This feels somewhat counter-intuitive and similar to the Monty Hall problem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Hall_problem, also known as "Three Door Puzzle").

And I think the correct answer is the same. After you made your choices about your future life, it is never late to change them, no matter how many bad examples of such changes you may see around. In fact, the more failed examples you see, the better odds would be for you that your way will be successful. All it takes is to make a decision for the change.

I liked this movie. A well balanced comedy with some laughter, but also some lyrics, love, and a meaning.

PS: Oh, and I do not think it is fair to call the portrayed family 'dysfunctional'. =) They are perfectly normal and real. More like Simpsons and just not like Flanders from other "family values" movies.
