Director - Brad Silberling

Genre - Comedy/Drama/Romance

Morgan Freeman has made an entire career out of playing mentor type roles. Here he is again, imparting his invaluable wisdom in this film. He is essentially a Jedi master sans lightsaber. Doing research for a supermarket manager role, Freeman who plays an aging actor encounters Paz Vega's cashier character and immediately decides to guide her towards a better life. Patronizing and overflowing with cliched moments and personalities, this movie relies heavily on the charms of Vega and Freeman. Spare us please.

2.5 STARS!
