I was impressed
5 April 2003 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

I saw a copy of this film on video because I am a huge fan of Vanessa Marcil. I wasn't expecting much from this because it looks like a disney movie but after watching it I was really impressed. Its pretty short so I dont think it could play in a movie theater but the story was really good. My only bad comment is Vanessa isn't in it more.
