Kind of predictable
19 March 2007 | by red_merlot87See all my reviews

In Australia, this movie is called A Change of Heart, which really doesn't have much to do with anything but anyway, on with the review. I missed the title credits, so I spent a majority of the movie wondering who the actors that played Keith and Kim were, and why they seemed so familiar. When I realised it was Andrew McCarthy, and his wife was played by the actress who was the fiancée from Meet the Parents, that excited me a lot more than the actual movie's resolution.

The movie has its moments I suppose, where it tugs at the heartstrings and you really feel for Keith, but in the end, it was kind of easy to guess what was going to happen.
