Every time I finally stopped crying, something happened to make me cry again
11 October 2003 | by (Tennessee, USA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on court tv, and I flicked in on it about twenty minutes into the movie. Every two minutes it seemed I was crying and i think I will be depressed for the rest of my life. But it was a good movie. It was really really good... and sooooo sad.
