Cute, Cute Cute, Romantic!

Little Miss Marker is just so cute and romantic that i cant stand it! Sara Stimson is adorable. Julie Andrews shines, and you see her like you were staring straight at the sun from just inches away, that's how much she shines. Miss Andrews' character (Amanda Worthington) is so kind and generous,yet so loud and independant. Walter Matthau is good, but Julie Andrews surpasses him very quickly and she acts right from the heart. Praise goes right to Julie Andrews! Bravo!
