    "This is my all-time favorite LGBT movie. I can't believe the twist that happened. I really hoped for the best for the two lovers but maybe changing the ending wouldn't have left much impact."

    "My Sister's Keeper is a really touching and heartwarming movie. I also want to point out how well Cameron Diaz portrayed her role! It's refreshing after seeing her star in many comedy and nonsensical movies."
