    Found this movie to be over rated. It dragged out so long, that I was ready to leave before the final third or so of the movie. Confusing too, as people showed up and could not understand their relationship to Casey Affleck's character. Nice acting by most of the performers, and some nice photography, but plot bored me. Perhaps this is more like a chick flick than a male movie. Also did not think the music was all that great unlike some other viewers, but then music is a matter of personal taste. Also detected a couple of miscrepancies. Main one was that Patrick told Lee that he was on the basketball and ice hockey teams at his high school. I find that hard to believe as both those sports are played in the same time of year, so mighty difficult to practice and play with both those teams at the same time. I won't mention the other, because it might be considered a "spoiler".
