Heartwarming, Family Friendly, Great Cast, Great Script!
6 November 2001 | by (Saginaw, MI) – See all my reviews

I watched Waterproof the first night I got it. I was not sure what to expect when I started watching it other than that it had to be safe for the entire family because it was put out by Cloud Ten Pictures.

I was delightfully surprized when I found myself laughing at "Sugar", and by the time the movie finished, I felt like part of the "family".

While most people may be drawn in by Burt Reynolds, I believe that this has to be one of his best performances ever! He is witty, spunky, and yet soft and gentle too. I was actually amazed that it was the same Burt Reyenolds of years ago.

Whitman Mayo brings the cast into complete harmony with his elderly charm, his great sense of humor and his smile and laugh. He will surely be missed.

This is a wonderful movie with something for everyone. There is action, adventure, romance, comedy, and best of all, the message of Jesus Christ. It is a must see for any family. I myself have seen it over a dozen times and it just keeps getting better.
