Bring the movie to DVD!
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please, please, please bring this movie out to DVD. I grew up watching this movie after every Christmas dinner. I have very fond memories of sitting around the Christmas tree, sipping cocoa and watching this wonderful family film. Our family tape has been watched so many times that it will not play anymore. This is a movie that I would love to pass along to my children someday--good, wholesome fun. And, not to mention the cheesy country-western singing. I love it! I think that every child of the 80's wanted Dolly as her mother after watching this one! Dolly and Lee made a wonderful team. So, please bring it to DVD! I do not own a VCR anymore.
