Great film
18 October 2000 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

This movie made me feel good. It gave me faith that good can come out of almost any situation. And that it is possible to survive in a seemingly hopeless situation. I have seen this show three or four times on cable.

The characters in this movie are some of the most memorable ever. And I mean all of them.

I like the remake of the song "Try a little tenderness".
