Like an old friend, a reliably warm romance, 6 March 2003
Author: janeeyrez from Port Orange, Florida, USA

This is a movie that I've watched at intervals over the last 20 years, always with a smile. Just today I had three women friends over for coffee and introduced it to them... and all three laughed, smiled and had a good time! What more could you ask of a romantic movie than that?
