I just caught the last 45 minutes of this film. whilst i appreciate that its based on true incidents - i think its almost an insult to this poor Jenifer that such a corny film should be made about.

what is so startling is that i don't think Americans are aware of when they are watching or making a cliché or something that is hideously sentimental such as this. i was praying for the mother from Malcolm in the middle to not fall into the trap - but sadly she did. shame. guess you just do what your director tells you to.

To watch these three sister hold hands, weep and gives speeches, with the gentle sound of piano music can only make you laugh (out loud - i did) - what ever their physical condition is.

as i was watching it, i thought - surely people can not at one point have been watching this in a cinema - of course not - its a TV film.

Ar*e of the highest order. */**********
