First off, this was a borderline chick flick, which I am not a huge fan of (sorry honey ;-). BUT, this movie is worth the time and more importantly worth the money. Mr. Cooper, and the surrounding cast, were excellent in this movie, good story line and decently written. When West coasters (like myself) see a movie involving anything close to East coast (like listening to the East coast accents), we pay attention. This movie felt like a real East coast middle to lower class East coast family and the struggles they can face, more importantly, the surrounding cast is believable, friends, doctors, strangers, all did a very good job, enjoy this movie.
