The things you see in red speedos when you haven't got an harpoon....

This film reminded me a bit of one of those "X Factor" episodes where the contestant has a really sad back story that you immediately sympathise with, but who then goes on to have precisely no talent whatsoever with their chosen song. Well, this is a sort of cinematic equivalent. Jessica Rothe is Jenn, quietly having a beer in a sports bar with her two girlfriends when three lads come to chat them up. One of them, slightly embarrassed by this, heads to the bar and she duly tags along. Immediately, they seem to hit it off and soon she and Sol (Harry Shum Jnr - "Glee" - shouldn't/couldn't sing but could dance a bit) are an item; love blossoms and wedding bells start to ring - until, that is, he becomes seriously ill and it becomes evident that the couple's yellow brick road might be tragically short. This true story is horrible - a grim realisation of a how sickness is no respecter of age or aspiration - but the acting is almost as horrible. The sentiment is gloopy and neither lead offers any real depth of character to their roles. The script is, itself, straight out of an episode of "Glee" (there is even some singing to Oasis' "Don't Look Back In Anger"!) and overall, I found this depiction of the whole subject just too weak to do justice to the theme or to sustain 90-odd minutes on a big screen. It's an engaging enough story but one that really belongs on the telly.

Relentlessly positive and embraces the very best that life has to offer

I really enjoyed this movie. Cheesy, sappy romantic dramas aren't entirely my cup of tea, but All My Life tells an admittedly familiar story with a real can-do attitude, and that makes it an absolute joy to watch. It may never be the tearjerker it often wants to be, but it's a story full of optimism that left me with a smile on my face. Now, you'll almost certainly have seen romantic dramas that deal with terminal illnesses. More recently, The Fault In Our Stars and Me Before You have both impressed in the genre, but it still feels like a story that's really overplayed in Hollywood. However, while All My Life is far from innovative in its screenplay, the unique way that it tells such a well-trodden story is really great to see. Based on a true story, the film has an extra level of passion to it, but it's also imbued with a more realist sense of optimism than the melodrama of so many manufactured Hollywood outings. Almost from the start, you know what's coming, and the film knows it too. So, rather than getting bogged down in telling a depressing, hyperbolic tragedy, All My Life looks on the bright side of life, and really makes your heart sing as a result. If you're looking for a tearjerker, this isn't your movie. At times, when it wants to be a bit sadder, it's a little too on-the-nose and abrupt, cheapening what is otherwise a very elegant tale. However, for a film that deals with an often sad story in an energetic and optimistic way, then All My Life is absolutely perfect. Enormously enjoyable from the start as we follow Jessica Rothe and Harry Shum Jr. falling in love, it's a colourful and vibrant affair that's full of far more joy than anguish. Rothe and Shum Jr. are just perfect together on screen, and though I don't want to say it for fear of sounding like a teenage girl, are a really cute couple that you root for all the way through. The film's bright, positive energy is so wonderful, and even though the core of its story is very sad, you'll find yourself smiling and laughing from beginning to end here. That's because All My Life follows through on its own message and embraces the best moments in life, without dwelling on the sad. You can make your own mind up as to whether that's a realistic or ridiculous mentality, but for the 90 minutes that this film runs, it's an absolute joy to sit back and bask in its relentless positivity. Overall, I really liked All My Life. Yes, it can be cheesy and sappy at times, and it's never the most effective tearjerker. However, with an active and positive attitude to a story that's so often told in irritatingly melodramatic fashion, it's an enormously enjoyable watch, filled with wonderful performances, colourful visuals, humour and an appreciation for the very best that life can offer.

Definitely worth a watch!!

All My Life is a pretty positive heartwarming film with leads that are impossible not to love and a supporting cast who felt like a big family. The soundtrack is also a stand out. However, It sure guarantees you to shed a tear. I think the director is more than aware of how to operate his audience into psychological submission, but in a year like 2020, overt sugary cliches aren't necessarily a bad thing when the packaging is as appealing as this.I loved how the movie embraces the best moments of life rather than dwelling on the sad ones. It sure did made me smile. Also, hands down to one of the best film proposals.
