I didn't expect much; I didn't know it was a remake. I was drawn in when the main character was from French Lick IN. I near that place and I wondered if it was autobiographical or something. Who the heck has heard of this place. The quirkiness of the female character kept me interested. I loved the romantic twist of story. I mistakenly first thought the shot of the old guy at the end was the main character aged years forward. That would've been an even more sentimental turn to the script. I actually teared up and then the story went another direction. All in all, worth watching.
