nice movie perfect drama!
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

very nice drama movie for the 2002 its sad because they called it death in the family but I actually cried over some movie people died once but I currently forgot it! A family movie to be watching for lots of good care but make sure don't watch it in the night or before you take a nap it is so drama, boring, and sad if you think it is... I had a very nice time watching it the first time but some of the parts are a bit cheesy but the little boy had to tell the teasing boys to stop witch is good, A death in the family perfect name! My brain was making my body comfortable and soft and I'm still looking for it online cause the youtube users didn't upload it plus it seems to be not around my town and I have to say that this movie is a bit to sad and strange for kids like under 7 and I had to chat about that it seems to have lots of heartbreaking and stuff to upset the little kids under the age like seven cause I have a seven year old girlfriend who likes this movie and when we together watched it (that's when I first watched it) she has never gotten sad or anything I was really delighted to see a dramatic movie like this I love sweet drama movies even the romance ones also the old movies that are in black and white so much!
