This movie has Philip Seymour Hoffman in it.

Steve Martin, Debra Winger, Liam Neesan, Lucas Haas and Lolita Davidovich (who plays the sister of Lucas Haas's character) all interact wonderfully in this story and have made it one of my favorite movies. I feel it works on all levels.

The musical numbers are beautiful produced and the story is well thought out and entertaining.

No car chases; no shoot ém up scenes nor dangling from sky scrapers, but a lot of insightful observations as well as humor permeates Leap of Faith.
