Kleenex time!
3 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The first reviewer took the words right out of my mind. This movie was so good, I had to watch it twice to see what I missed. So many movies out there that deal with nonsense. This one touches your heart. I'll admit I didn't want to see the movie because of Kathy Bates but this movie changed my opinion about her. I was disappointed that the movie had an open-ending but was satisfied that they family was going to be alright. One thing though... The narrator's voice and Edward Furlong's does not resemble one another. I have changed my own rating system..... Out of 10 stars, I give "A Home of Our Own" 6 1/2. Get the box of Kleenex!
