Heart-warming and entertaining, 7 December 2001
Author: aliveandblessed from SHREVE, OHIO

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.
