the movie was any good; it isn't. But Roeper implying that the scnaerio is fantastical and dopey ? is a little insensitive given that this actually happened to Kim and Krickitt Carpenter. To imply that Krickitt(Paige, in the flim) returned to being a spoiled, shallow daughter is dismissive of the fact that Krickett's unstable behavior was the result of her brain damage. The movie took great liberties with the real story, which Roeper could have taken the time to clarify.

Reply from Richard Roeper
The movie has precious little resemblance to the story to which you're referring. I didn't imply ANYTHING about the real-life story. I'm reviewing the MOVIE. It would be an insult to the viewers to have to point that out.

Best,

Richard
