Worth seeing more than once
14 October 2003 | by (Ft. Worth, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful, moving story that is funny and romantic and very well done. Betty White and Leslie Nielsen break out of their stereotypical roles and do a wonderful job. All of the acting in this movie is above average. The cinematography is top-notch as well. It's too bad that if you missed the original airing on t.v. you are (at least at this point in time) out of luck. But someone will wise up and put it on on dvd/video, and when they do, grab the chance to see it. BUY the dvd/video, because you'll want to see it again and again.
