Movie of the Millenium
12 October 1999 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

THE best movie of the millenium. (Even better than "..And Justice for All").

First (& maybe only) "Feelgood" movie (ever?) that did not sink into the depths of sentimentality. Both Arkin & Woods gave great performances .
