    Overall, I guess the movie was OK. But I have a question about the ending. The supposed “solution” to the building code problem is: the two romantic leads and other people in the community, put up a structure to hold the tree even higher up on the roof. How is this still not a building code violation? It’s still attached to the roof somehow, right? what am I missing here? Thanks.

      Well Steve, they didn’t put it ‘higher’ but built a platform like a ‘deck.’ So it was no longer sitting on the roof, but a safe platform and it was more like a potted plant sitting on a deck.
