I liked this movie quite a bit. I'm a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker and that's part of what attracted me to this movie. For me this movie was like Sex and the City without the sex. SJP, narrates most of the movie along with a few other people in her life. I wasn't sure about the film until I was an hour through the movie, and for me the things that happened in the plot were my reasons for liking it, not the actors.
Watch this movie! Indeed, I would totally recommend this movie to watch with your friends with a pizza night. Hope you enjoy it! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Blu-ray™ and DVD bonus features include a conversation with bestselling author, Allison Pearson.
