Bitter Sweet & True
17 May 2001 | by shannon715See all my reviews

Alcoholism is a lonely road and misery loves company. It's nice when conventional loved one and friends have a scrape goat to put their troubles on.but leaving a baby on a car seat on the back of a car? No.

It was very hard for me to watch this movie through tear soaked eyes. The best line.'Alcohol has no point.' So true. I think movies like this, including.'My Name Is Bill W.' & `Clean And Sober' Give a positive approach to a disease that we, as a nation, are plagued with. Paul Hogan was fantastic.as were all the actors dealing with such a difficult subject.. ****
