This is my favorite movie!!
25 December 1998 | by (Chino, California) – See all my reviews

I just loved this movie. I loved it so much that I was able to choreograph a tap dance piece to Zing With the Strings of My Heart. I took it to many competitions, and won numerous gold and first place trophies and medals. This movie deserves a 10 for excellent!
