A Perfect '10'
11 November 1998 | by (Garfield, N.J.) – See all my reviews

My wife and I had no problem sitting through this 3+ hour movie. In fact we could have watched more. It goes to show, they can still make interesting films without nudity and cursing. We

also went through a half dozen hankies. Tom
