This movie has remained one of my favorites over the years.
26 April 2004 | by (Gainesville, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie has remained one of my favorites over the years. John Schneider's performance was outstanding. This is a movie that gives you hope and tells you to "never give up"! As an architectural designer, I could watch this movie over and over again. Lob-lolly pine has been a material I have not forgotten in over 20 years. This movie leaves a lasting impression on you. A sweet love story with an heroic ending. Good things do happen to those who persevere. I wish we had more movies like this one today. Simple, pure, exciting, fun, creative, fresh and everlasting. I want to show this film to my children. I'd love to build this house for real. Thanks John!
