[with his mouth full]
Well, it is very good cake.

Excellent holiday viewing; wonderful acting all round.
I just saw this film yesterday morning - ideal relaxation for the holiday weekend. The story was OK, maybe a bit shallow for my taste - I'm haven't been a kid for a long time - but I was really taken with the acting. Everyone played his/her part beautifully, completely credible, and none was the frightful red-haired brat as used to be portrayed in children's movies.
I was particularly taken with Harriet herself, and am not surprised that she has gone on to greater things.
The main lesson learned from this film appears to be that two wrongs do not make a right. Bush note!
