Griffin and Phoenix

"Divorced, disconnected from his kids and living in a gloomy bachelor's pad, Griffin (Dermot Mulroney) is already down when he's diagnosed with inoperable cancer. Thus, it's with resignation that he enrolls in a class about accepting death -- never dreaming that he'll learn to accept life instead. Hope comes in the form of an assistant dean, the lovely Phoenix (Amanda Peet). Soon, the two embark on a romance that will change both their lives" courtesy of netflix

I laugh at the thought that I actually really liked this movie, its kind of "lifetime" and they have some corny lines, but Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney do their best and pull it off quite well. i loved the one line in the beginning of the movie when Griffin finds out he has cancer and there is nothing they can do and he says "so you can't save my life? ....can you validate my parking?" theres a few great lines in the movie, Phoenix asks Griffin a question and he just had some generic response and she says "well not every answer can be interesting i guess..." its really a pretty decent movie, its sad, you'll cry and you'll be touched. I would recommend it.
