Love has no boundaries
7 November 1998 | by (Vallejo, Ca) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film with wonderful Christian values. Whoopie Goldberg plays a good woman who is sent to help a family deal with the horrible reality of death. She not only brings love back into the household, but also magic.

This is a great movie for all ages. My kids loved it. They wanted to watch it again and again.

Enjoy!
