Very Heart Warming
19 April 2004 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I have recently been watching Patrick Swayze's DVD's and Videos. I am very much into his acting. I think Tiger is really a very touching story about a son who created a lot of trouble for his family, he got rehabilitated and wanted to go back home and make up for his trouble he had caused. I cry when I watch this story. I think this has happened in a lot of families in the United States. I think Patrick Swayze is very good. Of course, I think he is good in everything I have seen him act in. In my estimation this is a very tear jerker. I would watch this anyday, and cry when I watch it. There very little violence in it and I give it a top rating. Of course, Patrick Swayze is number one in my book for everything so far I have seen.
