I LOVE this movie!
16 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To tell you the truth, I have never seen the beginning of this movie. I caught it at the ending a while back and loved it. Then the other day I saw it (or rather just the ending) again. It was not listed in the television guide because it was aired as a tribute to Christopher Reeve, who died the day before, as he has a part in it. None the less, what I have seen is wonderful!

It is so heart warming. It makes you ball up in tears, and that is good for the eyes, the heart and soul of mankind!

This movie has got to be put on VHS or DVD! If not for the quality of heart touching movie that it is, then the other excuse might be because the tribute to Christopher Reeve.
