Well done "feel good" movie.
30 May 2001 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This film succeeds very well as a somewhat corny "feel good" movie. Purl is particularly good in an understated way. If you are at all into "feel good" movies this one will definitely leave you with that warm fuzzy feeling.
