"One of my absolute favourites, and i'm a young teenager. A classic story with a bit of predictability, but the beautiful endings and scenery more than makes up for it."
"2 1/2 stars...pleasant and un-offensive."
"This is the first movie I have seen Amanda Seyfried in... yikes... I thought she was terrible.... came across as an 18 year old acting in a school play. Her love interest in the movie was not much better. The story was cute and I think could have been made into an excellent movie if they would have gone with some decent actors. The older lady in the film was an okay actor. I would watch it again if it was on T.V. The movie might go over well with teenage girls...."
