I really loved this awesome movie
19 November 2004 | by (Newport News Virginia) – See all my reviews

Hi i saw the movie about 7 years ago before i saw it two or three days ago on Lifetime. My girlfriend and i were spending some quite time together just flipping through the channels and came across this movie, we were glued to the tube. It showed us that even in hard time you can still make it if you stay focused on your dream. That hard work in the long run will pan out. We also saw how a family is supportive of one another and share the same dream, that we too, if the desire was great enough could have a dream. Even in the mist of the storm all things will work out. It is a movie that will be forever in the mind of me and my girlfriend, it took us over eight years to see this movie again. Please tell us were we might buy this wonderful movie.
