I cried so much, I almost drowned
31 January 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A simple comment:

This is the earliest film I remember crying to. And being young at the time, along with owning my dear old dog Candy, it truly plucked some heart-strings. I should've taped it 'cause I long to watch it again. I might get another dog and name him Benji in tribute to his huggable hound.
