A little slice of heaven!

One of my all time favorite movies! It's a great coming-of-age story. I watched this movie so many times as a kid that the VHS tape was in bad shape. My mom taped it off PBS so I thought it was going to be lame, but I fell in love with it. I wish everyone my age had it memorized like myself, but then again I'm glad it's my little treasure!

It takes you back to a simpler time and place that everyone can relate to their childhood.

Also, over the years I've picked out the cast in other movies like Buzz from Home Alone, Scott from the episode of 90210 (he's David's friend who shot himself - that was a big episode), Mama Fratelli from The Goonies, etc.
