In a lumbering way, this depressing feel-good drama (1998) about the impact of cancer on two children, their divorced parents, and the father’s girlfriend offers some useful insights into how feelings of jealousy and betrayal can limit the potential of family relationships. But these ideas are more or less undermined by the movie’s maddeningly typical glamorizing of illness. Chris Columbus directed a screenplay by Gigi Levangie, Jessie Nelson, Steven Rogers, Karen Leigh Hopkins, and Ron Bass; with Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, Jena Malone, Liam Aiken, and Ed Harris.
