Two movies in one
1 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First we see the happy, carefree family. They are a bunch of old-south hillbillies. They might not be too easy on the eyes, but they have big hearts. They are simple, decent, loving people.

Then we see the family in sorrow with the loss of their mother. The father starts losing it and goes crazy. But the mother has left many wonderful kids, and they help him realize not all is lost.

There is good banjo music, nice scenery, laughs, tears, drama, a quaint wood cabin with a specially designed glass room, and other highlights...

Hooray for papa's angels!
