Great Movie
29 September 2003 | by (NY, US) – See all my reviews

I don't care what anyone says this is a great movie. I saw it when I was younger and wish I could see it again, but I can't seem to buy it anywhere as it was made for TV. I think the problem people have with this movie is it isn't the '61 version they grew up with. I can understand that, but don't dump on a movie because it's not the one you grew up with. They're both fantastic movies.
