Heartfelt, warm, inviting,a must see.
29 September 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is my favorite of all times. It hit so close to home. I feel this movie is one that almost anyone can relate to in some way in their own life. I was so moved by the seriousness of the characters. The closeness that they shared is practically unheard of now days. I love this movie for the wholesomeness, warmth, and family environment that it intells. I would recommend this movie to everyone I come in contact with. This is a movie that the whole family can enjoy. I almost felt the the characters were right in my back yard at times. The script was so well written, and the characters made it all seem so real life. I absolutely Loved it.
