Queen Latifah plays Georgia Byrd, a department store employee who finds out that she has about 3 weeks to live, so she decides to live it up (cashing in her bank account and bonds) with her last holiday.

Director Wayne Wang could have made this a sappy film, but thankfully it strikes a good balance between comedy and drama, and it results in a reaffirming look at life and getting what you want out of it.

I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B.

Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.
