Lacks dramatic credibility despite being a true story.

Can be cute, and even heartwarming at times. But all too often, it's nearly insufferable.

Gary Dowell
Dallas Morning News

Too contrived for its own good and it feels as artificial as a bouquet of plastic pansies.

Pablo Villaça

A irresistível simpatia dos personagens eleva o filme a um outro nível de interesse.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

Succeeds in capturing the movement of a soul from hopelessness to humanity.

Silly and sweet. Nothing more and nothing less than what it intends to be.
