I saw this movie last night and it was pretty good. John Ritter portrayed a sad character very well. He added in a tiny bit of slapstick with a nod to Three's Company and the story was predictable but you wanted to see it played out. The other lead was good as well but there could have been a better match for John Ritter regarding on-screen chemistry. Everyone in the movie was likable and even the villain (so to speak) turned out to be a likable character, not sure why that happens. It's shot in Toronto, which I love because I could pick up settings and Toronto looks as good as any city on screen I think. in any case, it's a good movie, the story is good enough to keep it worthy and the ending is predictable but nice.
