I'm a sentimental guy..
22 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hey, if you've got a sentimental bone in your body, you will like this movie. I was already to write a bad review, but then I read it was a true story, so I watched the whole thing, and I cried like a baby. Try it. If you've got dry eyes your a sad case. :)
