yet another Julia Roberts vehicle, albeit a slightly different one
for her to say the least. Luke Harrison (Ed Harris) is divorced
from his wife Jackie (Susan Sarandon) and is living with the new
love of his life Isabel Kelly (Julia Roberts).

with his children, especially with Anna (Jena Malone). Everything
that Isabel does to win over the kids fails. We then learn that
the children's mother has developed Cancer and now the kids and
Isabel must learn to get along as Jackie will not be around for
I was expecting this movie to be
somewhat more lighthearted but this did turn out to be quite
dramatic and enjoyable and exceeded my expectations. Julia Roberts
performance was great and a lot better than some of her other
roles. As usual Susan Sarandon excels in a role like this.
The only downside was Ed Harris'
performance it seemed a little light on as if it was only a cameo
more than a supporting role.
