"Both 'Freaky Friday' and 'Mean Girls' were movies, not unlike this, that you went into with low expectations, but I was delighted by. Romantic comedy is delicate, in developing the story, in casting, getting the right two people together, and directing it. In this one, even more so, because it deals with life and death, too. It could be melodramatic in the wrong hands, and (Waters) needed to balance these elements. I think he was able to let both things live, and that it had an emotional reality but it never let go of its comic heart."
