I am so proud...
6 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I am the proud daughter of Craig Holyoak, whom you will see was one of the writers for this film. I was eight when this film was written, and I had actually seen it a couple times before my dad's name was pointed out in the credits. I couldn't believe it. I loved it before, but I fell more in love with it when I knew my dad could take credit for such a great story. He is not one to boast or comment about his accomplishments (which is so well deserved), so I love to do that for him. He is such a talented artist and a wonderful father. I hope others enjoyed this movie as much as I did growing up!!!! Why isn't this played on Thanksgiving day anymore? I would love to see it played more often, such a great storyline..
