The Best Movie in the Entire World
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a movie to love. It is better than any theatrical or production ever made. This movie defines life, my life anyway. There is not a scene in this movie where I can't directly relate it to my life. My life has been a living hell for the past 6 years, I have been on the upside of the roller coaster, no downside in sight, and this movie has ALWAYS been there for me. I taped it off Disney in 1997 and it has followed me ever since. There is magic in this movie, something that I cannot put into words. There is a spirit in it. Even though I have seen it probably thousands of times over and over again, I can still put it in and cry all the way through it. In fact, I think I'm going to watch it right now!
