An entertaining, warm story
27 October 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was alot better than I thought it was going to be. The film was really engaging and the story of this family and what it went through was rather inspiring. Keith David was excellent as Earl Woods and the woman who played his wife was also quite good. >

Anyway, two thumbs up from me.
