" This was an average Sunday afternoon viewing, though stormier than usual. As for the movie, it's okay, but way too saccharine."

"12.10. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Gabriele Muccino Mitä paremmin pystyy sietämään elokuvan epäilyttävän kokoomuslaisen pohjavireen, sitä nautittavampi se on. Lähdin tähän aika skeptisellä asenteella, mutta elokuva voittikin minut puolelleen. Will Smith poikineen vetää yllättävän sympaattiset roolit ja optimismi on heikkouteni. Siirappi mielestäni pääosin kiitettävästi vältetty. Jonkin verran kurjuudessa vellomista ja luuskannereiden perässä juoksemista olisi täs"
