Trivia

Wonderful Movie
17 January 1999 | by (Madison,Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. It not only told a story but it taught you how drinking can ruin so many lifes. If you look back at all the movies Carroll O'Connor has been in they all teach a great lesson about how to live your life. This one told of love and friendship and what happens when you don't believe in yourself and you turn to drinking.
