About as warm, pleasing and inviting as a film about divorce, infidelity and terminal cancer can be.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
Too loud, bright and shallow for its subject: a movie that pushes too many obvious buttons to build naturally to the big, heartbreaking climax it obviously wants.

That this is a patchwork quilt of a screenplay (written by five credited writers) is apparent in its use of little bits of this and little bits of that. Did none of them notice, looking at the big picture, that it's unbelievable?

Austin Chronicle

These characters are too remote, too pretty, and too unrealistic to move us in any lasting way.

By David Sterritt
The movie is reasonably smart and touching when it deals with the plight of a family on the rocks, but it pushes too many emotional buttons when the ex-wife is diagnosed with a fatal illness that proceeds to take over the story.

The skill of the actors, who invest their characters with small touches of humanity, is useful in distracting us from the emotional manipulations, but it's like they're brightening separate rooms of a haunted house.

Older and younger movie star snipe and glare at each other with little subtlety, and little chemistry either. The two characters appear to be skirmishing only because they're supposed to by convention.

The most impressive thing about it is that the actors manage to sound so earnest while mouthing the most shameless cliches imaginable.

This is the kind of tearjerker that will cause audience members to cry, but only because they paid hard-earned money to see it.
