Heart-warming and entertaining
7 December 2001 | by (SHREVE, OHIO) – See all my reviews

I will be the first to admit that this movie is a little hokey at times, but it is a very heart-warming and entertaining family movie.

I highly recommend it for family viewing. Family movies are rare nowadays and when a good one comes along it is really a joy.
