Excellent Family Movie
21 July 2001 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie deeply touched my heart - if you have ever had a relationship with a loving Grandparent this truly brings out the love between grandparent and grandchild. If you have never had the experience this movie truly brings you close to one. Also makes you appreciate life to its fullest for even the simple things.
