Very good movie
30 August 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I saw this film during a boring bus-journey and it was fantastic for me! (Not because of the boring journey, it really was a fantastic movie...) First I thought that it will be not so good, but the actors, the famous and unknown actors and actresses were great, I really loved Dudley and Jack, I'm so sad, that they don't live with us anymore... And the act of Jack at the end of the movie was so... I don't know any word for this, but it was unforgettable. Thanks for the actors, director and everybody for this movie! I really loved John Shea too, I know him from other movies (but I think, he could not break his leg within that balloon...), and the enter of Ernie Dingo was very good, I saw him some years ago in other series. Christine Lahti was so beautiful again in this movie, I like her because her Finnish ancestors too. I love the movies with happy end, and in this movie it was really happy end - for everybody. I think it is a romantic funny movie, if you see it, later you must not forget it.
