[Will and Tom are a convertible, and it's raining]

I want my daughter to see it
18 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why is this movie so underrated as to not be available on DVD? There is so much petty, meaningless drivel in media. On the tube, in the theaters and on DVD. I have to shudder at the direction these are taking our kids. An inspiration like Tom Sullivan, whether over-dramatized or not in the movie, deserves an audience by our children. And a revisiting for those of us. Those of us whose personal trials were actualized and overcome after being inspired by the courage of the movie's main character. America has been so let down and sold out in recent years. Kids these days need in their memories more stories of real life heroes.
