Initial Thoughts

It’s the quiet stories with decent characters who live somewhat normal lives that get the worst ratings. But these sleepers are the ones with stories that make you feel alive. Dylan is a nice kid in a bad situation, and it’s anyone’s guess which tumor is going to burst first and bring his demise. His mom is already widowed, and she’s about to lose the second love of her life. A make-a-wish kind of foundation sets Dylan up with the ultimate last wish — fishing with his childhood hero, an NFL star — Dylan surprises everyone by saying his actual wish is a weekend alone with the sexy-hot Nikki Sinclair. It’s no spoiler that the movie ends with Dylan in a casket, and we’re being blunt here because Dylan was always blunt about his future. At the end of the movie, you feel like you’ve lost a friend, too.

Nikki: If you were ten years older.
