missed opportunity for viewers
13 January 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This film should be available in DVD format everywhere in this day and age! WIth all the re-copied story lines thrown out on film,ad nauseum these days, this is a very refreshing, family film that can only add greatly to one's library of home entertainment! It has not even been televised in 10 years! Shame on networks and syndicators for thumbing their noses at what viewers want to see! The entire cast is worth seeing in a bad film, but this is an excellent escape from the usual genre of film from this era. The Mills family shines along with another Disney stock player, James MacArthur! Talent, clean story line, a girl growing up before he father's eyes, all make for a great time spent for viewers. Hurry to DVD this one!!
