It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

This is definitely a “chick flick” with, unfortunately, bad acting and bad dialogue. After fast forwarding through a number of scenes I have to admit the ending held my attention. It could have been a great movie if it had some good directing and a better script. I say skip it.

Good - Language of the Enemy (2008) [aka A House Divided] 105 min. Based on actual events, this film surprised me in providing a well developed story with half-decent acting and likeable characters despite the low production values. The story is thematic of a Romeo and Juliet plot but nestled in the hills of the Palestinian borders. The film proposes that the only way to peace in the land is to eliminate hatred immediately regardless of the tragedies that befall its citizens. Sounds good to me.
