Just right for the fathers of the family.
1 October 2001 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

You just might like this movie if your an emotional father. Plus if your tired of watching movies where the father is always the bad guy, this should be just the movie for you.

This movie is just your average midday movie. Its one of a few hard to find movies where the guy wins the day.

Another movie I recommend you watch is 'The Bachelors Baby'(1996). Also another win for the father.
