I love this movie.
24 November 2001 | by (Albuquerque, N.M.) – See all my reviews

It's not action and it's not thrilling. It's perfect for those who bicker with their family and/or those that are nosy about what goes on in other families. A great afternoon movie that you can watch again and again and never grow tired. Great intro and ending song by Beverly. Beautiful song that fits the family's and our lives quite well.
