First off… the little girl (Mimi Kirkland) who played Lexi or Kristen in the book is absolutely gorgeous!! The movie was predictably good and entertaining! I watched it with my hubby and did get teary eyed thinking about What if?? What if something happened to me… I definitely would want him to find a great woman to love him and love my kids!! Julianne and Josh have great chemistry together. I think the only portion of the movie that I was disappointed in was the son’s character… his negative attitude then overnight 180… no explanation. I feel that his character was definitely better in the book!! I am really big on reading books before watching the movies. For me the books are so much more emotional and capture the essence of the characters more. Overall I thought the movie was great but loved the book so much more!!
Disclosure: I received complimentary movie passes to attend a pre-screening. I was not compensated to write a positive or favorable review. This is Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s personal opinion.
