Very inspirational!!
16 July 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie is very inspirational!! William H. Macy did a wonderful job in this movie and deserves an award for his outstanding performance. It is very well written and I can't wait to watch it again and again. We need more family movies like this. There was no violence, no sex, no vulgar language. I have been recommending this movie to EVERYONE! Bill Porter is UNSTOPPABLE!!
