One of the best
23 June 1999 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I also saw this movie as a kid on late night TV. I never forgot it and would love to see it on DVD. I think it was the first time I fell in love. The leading man/fish is one of the most beautiful and sweet characters I had ever seen.
