Thanksgiving film with lots of great family-oriented themes.
22 November 2007 | by (Vermont, United States) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie when it was first on and, as a teacher, have shown it to my sixth graders every year. They all LOVE it even in this day of sex, violence, and graphic action. The movie is heart-warming and filled with lots of wonderful family-oriented themes, love from the heart being the over-riding one. It's sad that today's film-makers can't produce family-oriented movies without trash. This film is a great example of family values, self-responsibility, and living an honest lifestyle of hard work and respect for self and others. Today's youth needs more movies like this! This one needs to be released on DVD now!
