knocks you over
on January 28, 2011
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought this was going to be some light rom com. Be prepared for serious tearing up in this one as, although it has its comic moments, it's a movie that knocks you for a loop. I won't spoil anything for anyone but it has both tears of joy and sadness.
I thought the casting was terrific from Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart and Abigail Breslin (who could have come across as cute yet cloying but really was terrific in this as a kid whose world changes in an instant).
The DVD extra (there's only one) is a look at how the main actors prepared for their roles as chefs. It's an episode of "Unwrapped" from the Food Network and is really a fantastic insight into the way actors work.
