This is a film I have been wanting to see for some time, no particular reason why.
It turned out to be a little better than expected, although Thomas did do his overacting bits occasionally, usually when he was excited and yelling “YEAH!”, and waving his arms around a lot. He also did his trademark grin/smile a lot, he seems to think this will get him an Academy Award or something. But at times he was really quite decent and not annoying at all.
The story too was pretty good and kind of original, and there was a good cast including Renée Zellweger and Cuba Gooding Jr., and Jonathan Lipnicki as the cute kid. It did get a bit too soppy at times, uncomfortably so, but at other times it was quite funny.
Worth a watch just not only to see Thomas do his thing, but also for the rest of it if you can block out the soppiness.
