I just find it so sweet and romantic and hopeful.
It doesn't hurt that it has two of my favorite actors in it (Sam Neill and Robin Williams) playing off of each other. I know some would see this as more of a comedy, but I don't. Not sure what genre I'd slip it in since it has a bit of everything in it except for action of course. I actually prefer Williams' more serious movies over his comedic performances (I usually do with comedians). And I'd pretty much watch Neill in just about anything.
