The Night The Animals Talked
19 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie, I Had just gave birth to my first daughter. This movie was so inspirational that it brought tears to my eyes. I enjoyed this movie so much, I want my children and grandchildren to see it with me. It breaks my heart that this movie is not seen any more. I am in my late fifties, and I still would like to see this movie again. It may bring tears to my eyes, but they are tears of joy. With all the trouble around us we need more movies like The Night The Animals Talked. I have been searching for this movie for a very long time, if any one knows where I can find this movie, Please let us know. I looked at the family line-up for 25 days of Christmas, and again no movie of The Night The Animals Talked. This movie, The Night The Animals Talked is a great movie at Christmas time as well as anytime of the year. We need more movies like The Night The Animals Talked, to be seen on television. and DVD's or video, so more children could understand the great joy that it inspires.
