Simply and utterly fantastic! Broke my heart multiple times while laughing all the while. Poignant, important and real. If you've read the book, you'll be very happy with the movie, it's as good as the book (which is hard as the book is one of the best books I've ever read!). If you haven't read this book, you'll still love it! Little Mo Mabley steals the scene every time she's on the screen. I fell even more in love with the characters after seeing them in the movie. I just wanted to give Cecilia a big hug and cry with her. And how great is her husband? Seriously, go see this movie! Now!
