Saw once 26 years ago - still fondly remember!
26 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I forget many things - but this movie I have not!

Very sensitive and enriching.

I remember a great deal of humor and smiles, but also a strong and open message. I say open in that it is not an elitist, talk-down-to message - rather it is simple and accessible, without dumbing-down the feelings and efforts of the protagonists.

Excellent script/story that is very effectively, enjoyably realized.

See this movie. It must be showing on Hallmark, right?
