Joyce May: How... how do you know?
Dearie B.: Because I wished it!
Joyce May: Dearie, it's not that simple.
Dearie B.: Of course it is. You don't need a piece of paper to tell you what's already in your heart. Even I know that.

Timeless classic like Peanut Butter and Jelly
24 June 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I truly love this movie for all the values it processes. It shows the power of personal growth, family values and unconditional love. I love all the characters because they remind me of my family. A southern family with strong personalities.tied to the simple pleasures of life. I love the way Dearie B captures every season with the forgotten art of canning vegetable and fruits. These are traditions lost from our old generations and they are falling by the wayside. I love the change Joyce makes in the movie, she learns valuable lessons. I've been patiently waiting on this movie to be available on VHS or DVD because this is something that everyone needs to see.
