Customer Review

on 14 July 2011
This movie is the funny/sad story of a 30 something teacher, traced by her mother who abandoned her whilst a baby. It tells of their developing relationship and the complex problems they have to face, Bette Midler gives a great performance but Helen Hunt (who directs as well)gives a somewhat "shell shocked" performance and looks like a startled rabbit caught in a car's headlights. Colin Firth, competently supports, starring as Hunt's love interest. If you have read the book of the same title and expect to see a faithful interpretation in this film, you will be disappointed. Apart from the concept of a birth mother tracing and finding her daugther after some 30 years, the film bears no other resemblance to the book at all.
