Where's Willie
12 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie been shot here in Kerrville..They shot this movie at my school,at that time and had a lot of us kids in it.I was in the movie also..I can see my self as the camera pans in the school room screen..its so funny.I also remember meeting the actors too, just a normal kids like us.It was a OK movie back then but now when i see it it so boring and to see how Kerrville has changed over the years..One of my friends had a copy of the movie which he made me a copy of it and looking back on this movie makes me wonder how Kerrvile is a nice place to live..As of now i still reside in beautiful Kerrville Texas.So i rate it it a 5. Was good back then, but now its plain and boring but like i said its sure to see Kerrville the way it looked back then compare to now.
