This is a family movie that has it all. It is naïve, natural, funny and moving. I watched it three times over two weeks before returning it to Netflix. Each time, I caught something different.

It also slightly touches on the basics of maintaining the initial atmosphere of love in a marriage.. This cute story is enhanced visually with Manhattan as the backdrop.
I enjoyed it so much, hope you do too.
