Boring, yet sweet.
20 October 2001 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A bit boring at times, and whoever it was who played Uncle Danny's wife annoyed the heck out of me. But then, I suppose that was her job. When it started out, I I just wanted to go to sleep. But by the time it ended, I found my self thinking, "what a sweet little film". But, man, I must say, I was relieved when that woman died.
