Such a wonderful movie! I love Sandra Bullock here, and I think she was definitely cheated out of at least an Oscar nomination. She is simply amazing as Birdie Calvert Pruitt, a woman who receives news of her husband's infidelity in a most hurtful way. She travels to her hometown in Texas with her young daughter. It is there that she begins to heal and begins to bond with her family and high school friends. Harry Connick Jr is a New Orleans native, but he is perfectly cast here as Justin Matiese, Birdie's high school love interest. You'll laugh and you'll cry. One of my all-time favorite romantic dramas!

A fun little rom com

What a horrible movie. This movie shows what happens when parents divorce, and what the children have to go through; except, this movie thinks it is ok, and the child should just suck it up. Not at all recommended. And I thought Sandra Bullock was better than this.
