Memories
17 November 2002 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

I don't even remember when and where I first saw this movie but I always loved it as a young girl. It has an old fashioned quality about it. The lead adult players to not end up in bed and I like that. I loved Katherine Healys performance in this and I was shocked to see that it was her only film role. She didn't have that prototype hollywood look, that has to be the only reason she didn't become a huge star. I think the is adorable and very talented.

I used to watch this movie on cable and when I got older I just had to buy it on VHS. Since then I have probably watched it at least once a year. Today as I was flipping channels, I came across it and it just warmed my heart. WE (the Womens Entertainment channel) is running it now and I watched with the commercials and all.

I recommend it.
