Not at all bad
7 May 2000 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

it's been probably ten years since i've seen this movie. i don't recall it being bad, but there's something about it that stands out to me as excellent

  • its soundtrack. some of Denver's most memorable songs come from this cd -


"Higher Ground" - "Home Grown Tomatoes" - "Alaska and Me"... listening to it almost makes me cry. what an artist that we've lost... watch it, if just for the songs...
