A must see movie
7 March 2002 | by (East Coast, USA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid, and can't remember if I saw the whole thing. Somebody should make it available, or show it on PBS. It's a great bit of Americana and funny beyond words could describe.

I REALLY WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!
