Simply wonderful
12 April 2004 | by (Sunny London) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie out of sheer chance. Sitting far away from my remote, and on a lazy Easter Monday afternoon... I couldn't be bother to get up and change the channel... so just stayed where I was and watched this great film.

There is no death... no destruction. It's just a happy film that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's really good... so if you get the chance to watch it, do.

10 flaps outta 10 because it made me happy. And make sure you have a big box of chocolates with you when you watch it as well... coz it makes it even sweeter :) FrozenDreamer xxx
