- Critics' reviews
"Some people will find it emotionally manipulative. Some people like to be emotionally manipulated. I do, when it's done well. (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"May be among the most transcendently, eye-poppingly, call-your-friend-ranting-in-the-middle-of-the-night-just-to-go-over-it-one-more-time crazily awful motion pictures ever made. I would tell you to go out and see it for yourself, but you might take that as a recommendation"
A. O. Scott: The New York Times
"It takes the soggy cake for multiple layers of sentimentality topped by indigestible grandiosity."
Joe Morgenstern: The Wall Street Journal
"An endlessly sentimental fable about sacrifice and redemption that aims only at the heart at the expense of the head. Intricately constructed so as to infuriate anyone predominantly guided by rationality and intellect."
Todd McCarthy: Variety
