1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 10 Mar 2013
I bought this for Mother's day following all the suggestive adverts "a great gift for Mother's day", when this was in the cinema the trailers looked quite good too, so I thought I was onto a winner.
I could not have been more disappointed.
The film is dreadful (obviously my opinion there).
The whole film is awkward and not in the slightest bit funny; I think I laughed once as something to do. It also seems to fall on it's face on the romantic bit.
I watched this with my mum and in her words "this is the worst Meryl Streep film" she has ever seen, and she's seen most of them.
The combination of Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones is just uninspiring and they seem to… Read more

One down side is that the new create a sim… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Dec 2007
I have been a fan of ER for years and thought what a stroke of brilliance it was for a game to be released based on the show.
I enjoyed playing the game, it was slightly too simple in some places (patient diagnosis and treatment) and some tasks seemed pointless and a waste of time. You start the game as a new intern working through 36 hour shifts in an episode format. Each 'episode' in the game takes around 50 minutes to play.When you get to the end of the 5th episode (i think)all the doctors in the hospital tell you how impressed they are with you and you have to speak to the main patients you have treated, once you complete this mind numbingly simple task a box comes up and tells… Read more
