A relaxing feel-good movie, filmed in a beautiful tranquil location. I loved it and would watch it again and again. Great cast of characters (especially the dog). The Morgan Freeman character would make a great creative writing teacher.

Morgan Freeman as the main character is too old to play the lead romantic role convincingly. The main character is sardonic, which Freeman plays very well, but the main relationship should have remained platonic to be believable. The fact that the main character is in a wheelchair adds nothing to the story, and it makes the character's level of mobility in various scenes implausible. This was an enjoyable movie in many respects, and the incidental characters in the movie helped to create scenes that made the movie very funny.

The catalog info is incorrect: The DVD has Spanish language subtitles available but it does not have closed captions (in English) for hearing impaired or deaf patrons.

I rated this not super due to my sense that Morgan Freeman had a hard time convincing me that he was a bitter, defeated man. Overall it is pleasurable to watch but I found myself while enjoying parts of the scripts never really feeling immersed with the characters or story. Pet peeve: Directors when you and the main actor/actresses comment on the movie, please have something meaningful to say which adds to my understanding the film your voices and status alone don't do it for me. I learned in the commentary that Morgan was at best lukewarm towards the dog :) - one demerit for him.

A predictable, effective, and charming heart-warmer. Perfect casting. A 'Sure Thing' for a low-dose mid-winter feel-good 'fix'.

predictable, heart warming, It inspired me to feel charitable - hence the two stars. a couple of characters worth getting to know (one of them is the dog).

Monte Wildhorn (to Spot/Ringo): "Your behavior tonight was exemplary. As a result, I'm gonna lift the ban on farting."
