The Most Remembered Movie As A Child
23 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

I love this movie from the first time i saw it as a little girl, I was 8 when it came out and now i'm 25, and it still makes me laugh and cry with tears. I would suggest this movie to any little girl growing up. It is a great family movie. I give it a 10!!
