Anyone that is not moved after watching this movie might be related to the
Grinch, having a heart that is 4 times too small to feel. Of all the crap
that spews out of hollywood, we should be glad that they still make movies
like this one. The acting was believable, and the story amazing. I can
watch this movie over and over and not get sick of it. If you have not
it, or thought it was a dud, watch it again with new eyes.
