A MOVING STORY JOHN RITTER WAS GREAT
17 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Angie McCright was outstanding as little Lisa my favorite line would have to be "Are we still gonna have the track meet" A must see for any comedy fan.This movie is a great example of how John Ritter can make any kind of movie enjoyable.
