I guess I'm just old-fashioned, since this is the kind of movie that appeals to me. I haven't gone to a theater in years due to the crap they put out now. What's wrong with a sweet little film that leaves you feeling good about life? It was quite inspiring. I like to watch movies that are as I would imagine things to be without all the harsh and ugly realities that are out there.I can't stand most newer movies due to the bad language. (many times put in only to give it a more restrictive rating) I would like to see the return of this style of movie with a modern day setting. At least you could take your kids without feeling embarrassed about it.
