Mine: This movie was just plain icky. The direction is terrible, the writing even worse. You get the idea that this is really Richard Gere we are watching not a character(badly acted). Winona is beautiful, but the part sucks and she does not help any. She has a bad case of "Ali Magraw Syndrome)*. I was tempted to give this at least 1/2 a star because she is pretty and so in NYC but it was just too terrible. For a romantic story to work, especially at a tragic one like this, you must like the people involved. SPOILER WARNING!!!! The Richard Gere character is a true asshole. You first find this out when, because he is nervous about commitment, he sleeps with someone else when on a date with Winona! Then when he realizes his mistake he is forgiven very quickly and they sleep together right then and there. And if that is not bad enough against the very elequently expressed wishes of Winona and behind her back he makes an arrangement with a heart surgeon and forges a remade living will. And when she finds out she says, "OK, I know that this is not what I want but if want it, sure". He is self centered, mean, childish. She is stupid and childish. BAD STUFF. Plus a really bad soundtrack and silly direction. Stay away from this one!

*Ali McGaw Syndrome: A term coined by Roger Ebert when the heroine get more and more beautiful as death approches.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Romantic drama about an aging playboy who falls for a sweet, but terminally ill, young woman.
