For a movie featuring Dennis Quaid and Julia Roberts as the leads, I expected more, but this film has an extremely unsatisfying ending. The movie is really about relationships in all forms, not just romantic ones. There's the cheating husband, the father-daughter dynamic, the sisterly bond, and two daughters who love, but are disappointed in their mother. Overall, the dynamic between Julia Roberts and Kyra Sedgwick, who plays her sister, was one of the best parts of the movie. It was empowering to watch so many strong female characters fight for what they want, which is why the ending was such a let down. To me, this whole movie was leaning toward a message of strength and empowerment, so ending with Julia's character getting back with a man who cheated on her felt like it missed the mark. Although, on the one hand, I do appreciate the message that even when you grow apart, the love that remains between two people is strong.
