A nice movie. Fun to watch
17 March 2006 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

The very first time I saw this movie I didn't really like it that much but it was repeated the following year, and by the time I had seen it again it grew a little on me, and by the third year I liked it. They repeated it here once for five years straight and foolish me watched it but the funny thing is I really liked it.

The performances of Cynthia Gibb and the little boy played by Curis Blanck. Also David James Elliot from Jag as the dreamer who catches Ms Gibb's heart, and for a change the woman chasing the man.

I haven't seen the original movie this is a remake of but I plan to find a copy to watch just to compare.

Overall I gave the movie a 7/10
