I WOULD LOVE TO BUY THIS MOVIE! I HOPE IT'S AVAILABLE!
20 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie! It brought so much life to the meaning of life and I would pay just about any price for a copy! Hopefully there is a copy out there somewhere. The storyline was great and the performances were excellent. I give credit where it is due and you are all over due for credit for this particular film. I am only 18 years, when I first saw this movie I was about 8 or 9 and I thought it was great!
