Wonderful movie. Eddie Murphy is amazing as Mr. Church. The story revolves around a woman dying of breast cancer, her young daughter and Mr. Church their cook. But he is so much more. He is also their friend, teacher and the one constant being in their ever-changing lives. It also shows that everyone has a story of their own. Mr. Church is dealing with his own painful memories. This movie is based on a true story.

This is definitely a 5 star movie. It is inspirational, sometimes sad but a wonderful story.
A must see for all.
Eddie Murphy's acting was star power!

Excellent story about love, but not a love story. Will warm your heart and put tears in your eyes. Acting is excellent, Mr. Murphy's best serious role, I think. Only complaint is the use of profanity, but it's credible in context anyway.

Great movie, best role that I have ever seen Eddie Murphy play. Also just love Britt Nicole so that made the movie even better. This film gets a high recommendation from me!

Starts slow, but builds into a terrific story. Great acting. Not normally a fan of such films, but this one is a hidden gem.

I gave up after a few minutes. Did not hold my interest Different type of role for Eddie.

I thought I'd give up after a few minutes but I really like this movie. The actors all performed the story very well, and the cast is excellent. A good movie with a good story. Hard to ask for more.

It was nice to see Mr. Murphy in a drama film, which I felt he played well. My issues are the disconnect in clothing styles for the supposed time period, it was so out of order, as were many of the conversations . I have experience in this specific era & it did not match up.

I always said that comedians make the best dramatic actors. They draw on their pain. Amazing movie. I would recommend it.
