Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times called the film "warm and funny" and thought "there is a lot to like about [it]," but ultimately was disappointed with it on the whole. He observed, "Try as I might, I just couldn't accept this Victorian story in modern dress. The motivations seemed wrong would 20th century people behave this way? This is not at all a bad movie, mind you, but a good movie gone wrong, through a simple twist of miscalculation.
Hal Hinson of the Washington Post said, "When clowns write sad stories for themselves, the results are almost always disastrous.
And if the exercise isn't precisely disastrous, it comes very close to it Perhaps it's a stretch for a performer with such remarkable charisma to play someone who is without it Martin does a skillful job of nullifying himself, and he does present a side of himself that has been glimpsed only briefly. But what a joyless accomplishment it is.
As a comic, Martin soars, but here he has clipped his own wings. Martin leavens the material somewhat, but this is a faithful, heartfelt, somber piece about family and responsibility. He describes it as a "charming update of Silas Marner" that is well written, well played and has substance and a musical score that successfully bring 19th century literature into a moving and powerful modern-day film.

A stretch would be that often animals are born in spring have an advantage as more food and warmer weather early on helps survival rates. Those born later are not so lucky and this timing is all about fate.
He feels that he or just this particular instance is somehow defective due to circumstances that he does not understand and cannot control a simple twist of fate. My two cents as conveyed in a conversation with another. I welcome any thoughts on this from you people. General Comment "She was born in the spring. I was born too late. Flag bellababy on February 08, General Comment Dylan never ceases to touch me and my life through his songs, it is almost uncanny just how he hits you where it matters, and feels the most, these lines for instance: Such a perfect description of how it feels to lose track of someone you think or know that you will one day grow to love.
I can't say I can think of a single couplet that better sums up the way that people feel when they first meet a girl that's going to become a part of their life. That sudden tingle, and then the feeling of being completely open and vulnerable, in that it's just you and her.

This song is saying great love requires fate. No matter how hard someone tries to make their own fate, it wont work. The real, authentic fate is in the hands of the gods and you cannot fool the gods. Those who are meant, are meant.
