This is one of those movies that makes you feel good when you finish watching it. And I love the fact that one side of the dvd is full screen and the other is wide screen!
This movie is about a man who has a form of cancer and has lost his hair and is bloated and unhappy with his current life. He lives sort of a secluded life and his sister Lizzie writes romance novels and she wants everyone to be happy. So she sets up her brother with a journalist and it doesn't go well. But then Lizzie decides that she can make Gus, the brother, the man that the journalist needs and wants! So there you go...an adventure starts.
I was diagnosed with stomach cancer and I was supposed to survive it, but I did. The healing and feeling like a 'human' again took me a long time. I could easily and very much relate to this. I was already married and my husband never treated me like an ugly duck, but for the most part I just felt frumpy and there. I could relate to Gus and wanting to just be home and with a few family and that was my life and I was ok with it. The movies does make you want to do more which is good!
I can say that I'm mostly healthy now. I have been cancer free for a couple years now and once my immune system gets higher I'll practically 'normal!'
