We want a copy of this movie - where do we buy one ?
16 July 2002 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

This was a warm movie about real life. Cagney, Carney and Barkin did an outstanding job of portraying the great generation gap and how it CAN come together. Those who did not like this movie probably like a lot of violence and sex in movies.Those people are typical of this day and age...what a shame.

How do we buy a copy of this movie ? We have looked everywhere and it is not available - WHY ?????????
