Great movie
18 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

The movie shows the common life of people who wants to change their life and move around. It's a great movie, touching, and I recommend. Tells the story of a family who lives in a condo, whose name is Radiant City. The mother, Kirstie Alley, tired of being just the mother, and live the boring life with the gossip and little things, and goes to find a job. Then she learns how life can be exciting and funny. But she doesn't tell her husband about this new job, and they got problems to continuous on the condo. The movie is plenty of music, and the boys and girls who we used to see in a production that shows the 60s. The word of the kids deserves the attention.
