Best movie ever
29 January 2003 | by (Newfoundland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago and I thought it was wicked. It was so romantic and I cried every time that Paxton did.. She was such a strong girl. I think the best thing she did in that movie was try to find Tony. I think he was the best thing that happened to her in her whole experience.
