Where the Heart is (2000)

Description
Pregnant 17-year-old Novalee Nation runs away from her Tennessee home toward the bright lights of California, accompanied by her boyfriend, Willy Jack Pickens. But after being abandoned by her boyfriend at a Wal-Mart in Oklahoma, Novalee has no job, no skills and only $5.55 in her pocket, so she secretly lives in the Wal-Mart until her daughter Americus is born six weeks later. Novalee decides to raise her daughter and rebuild her life, with the help of eccentric but kind strangers.

A chick flick that's as yummy as eating bon-bons.

The script, based on a novel by Billie Lett, is sprinkled with phrases meant to be poignant and funny, but sound like repackaged cliches.

This is as irritating as chick flicks come and it's a real disappointment since Portman's talents are totally wasted.

Where the Heart Is has a screenplay like that, zigging and zagging and wildly careening from one melodramatic development to the next.

The scenes feel forced, producing episodic plotting and calling attention to the characters' superficiality.

Portman ... is remarkably persuasive as the unschooled Novalee.

Unfortunately, the spirited performances (notably Stockard Channing as the benevolent Sister Husband) buckle under the weight of the implausibly overloaded script.

Not possessing much in the way of a character arc, saints are boring to watch and impossible to act.
