Where may I ask, is my coffee? I always start my day with a cup of coffee.
Okay, if you're good, I'll make you breakfast.
Cook? Like a woman! You are a woman!
Oh please, you guys are so old fashioned.
I'll have you know I'm a civilized man.

Why this movie doesn't have an average of around 9 eludes me. It is a wondeful film. So well acted and with a very engaging story. This is a great film for the whole family. You'll love it. The lead actor - Hal Scardino - is such a natural. He's completely believable, as is his friend. The Indian is also wonderfully brought to life. How they made the special effects work so well back in 1995 (well... that was a while back for film special effects anyway...) I don't know. I wish we could see more warm hearted films like this today.
