Overview

A has-been '80s pop star whose phone stopped ringing some time ago, Paul Kerr (Craig Ferguson) is an alcoholic on a downward spiral. After crashing his motorcycle through a window and into a fountain in his estate, Paul is sent to a mental hospital on the assumption that he has become suicidal. When a woman named Rebecca (Jemma Redgrave) shows up one day with teenage Olivia (Charlotte Church), whom she claims is Paul's long lost daughter, both the girl and the depressed singer slowly begin find a new sense of purpose in their lives. Returning to his home to set his life straight with a little help from a former bandmate, a tentative romance develops between Rebecca and Paul. Subsequently discovering that his newfound daughter shares her father's talent for singing, it appears as if Paul may well be on his way to finally finding post-fame happiness in life.

I¿ve been following Charlotte Church¿s career since her first album, Voice of an Angel -- how many 12-year-old artists successfully debut with Opera? I purchased this DVD to see if she could act as well she sings. Though she portrayed her character very well, her role was not dynamic enough to answer my question. For me, the only flaw in I¿ll Be There is that Miss Church did not do more singing. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

This was a really good feel good movie! Ms. Church is also a very good actress. I would like to see her in more roles.

We rented this movie because we like Miss Church's music. We found the movie very watchable as a movie and VERY funny in parts. Enjoyed all the music, espcially Miss Church's songs, of course. We will buy the movie and watch it again.
