Like a poke in the eye with a sharp stick
Firstly, all the good reviews here, you know the 10/10ers are written by reviewers who have only one movie reviewed. A sure sign of something wrong - pure flack.
This isn't horrible: but it really is a waste. The acting above all stinks...
The writing is fine except when you really want it to be original it is horribly clichéd
The film is horribly slushy. And the hospital subplot is entirely unnecessary.
If I ever meet the person responsible for the music I will definitely be asking for my money back; just intrusive, inappropriate and all round yucky...
It would have been so much better to concentrate on the classroom and the poker room. It has a good premise and ruins it by turning it into a soppy soap opera...
Looks and feels like a made for TV special in every respect. Watchable, barely.
