I have watched this movie at least 100 times
6 August 2001 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

You know when you find one of those movies - and it just connects with some part of you, that may or may not be the sucker part?

Well this happened to me.

A friend left this movie at my house and moved away... one day, me and my best friend sat down to watch it. And cried.

It was a beautiful, if typical, chick movie, I loved the scenery shots, even if they were computer generated, I loved the little antics like "flan" no spoiler.. just a joke you will understand if you get off your butt and find this movie.. its great for girls.. boys may enjoy it but not nearly as much as a girl and her girlies :)
