Review

The mark of a good film is having the power to elicit an emotional reaction from its audience. From start to finish, this film made us feel so many emotions. It made us laugh, it made us cry, it left us all with a sense of warmth and happiness. Through the perspective of an outsider suddenly being hurled into the lives of others and the problems they face, we are reminded of the great power of love…

…The remarkable ability it has to heal and bring positive changes into our lives. A beautiful heartwarming story brought to life through the wonderful talents of all the cast and crew. This film is more than worth the time to see it at least once. We wholeheartedly recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a fun romantic comedy with a deep and meaningful message.

– Also please remember to drive carefully everyone!
