Then She Found Me

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is Anna @ Mommy in the Mountains.

From the product: “An all-star cast with memorable performances by Helen Hunt, Matthew Broderick, Bette Midler and Colin Firth powers this smart, funny drama about love and destiny. Desperate to start a family, schoolteacher April Epner (Hunt) is thrown into confusion when she is unexpectedly abandoned by her husband (Broderick). She gets another shock when she meets her unusual birth mother (Midler), a self-centered talk show host who’s not exactly the ideal mom. At first she rejects her, along with the attentions of a divorced dad (Firth), but then she begins to find her life opening up in ways she had never imagined.”

This movie explores the many different facets of life - marriage, pregnancy, miscarriage, adoption, love, betrayal, and family bonds. And although this seemed more like a movie you’d find on Lifetime, it was nonetheless entertaining.

I’ve always been a big fan of Helen Hunt ever since Mad About You and she turns in an outstanding performance as April Epner. Although, I did want to slap her a few times every time she went back to her wimpy ex (Broderick). Bette Midler is perfectly casted as the essentric birth mom and adds witty humor to this film. I can’t imagine anyone else playing the part but her.

I’m not sure I’d watch it over again but I am glad I had the opportunity to check it out. It was nice to see Helen Hunt on the screen again.

Then She Found Me can be purchased at for 19.99.
