A very good drama that doesn't take itself too seriously.

This is a very good movie. It shows that sometimes things aren't always how you want them to be. It also shows that life can surprise at any moment. I love how Earl tells the boy that happiness is having something to live for. Which i find to be very true. I cant wait to share this movie with my family!

5/5 EXCELLENT This is one of the best dramas I've seen to date. This movie was very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It told such a warm heartfelt story and everyone put on a good performance.
