This was the same story as The Green Card but with a better cast and a more realistic setting. She brought great credibility to her role, as always.
I had two problems with this film: the immigration cop was too cartoonishly written and played and the subject of illegal immigration was treated as if it were really about people getting together and finding love. It's actually a serious issue and the morality around it is much more complicated than is depicted here.
While I found the story and its resolution satisfying on an emotional level, I was left with nagging reservations about the underlying message.
