Funny, heartwarming and wonderful, 16 July 2002
Author: SherBa from Virginia, USA

I loved this movie. I loved William H. Macy. He was terrific as Bill Porter. He made the character so real with so much spirit that I couldn't help but love him. I was often moved to tears and laughter as I came to admire this "persistent and persevering" and wonderfully endearing door-to-door salesman.

It is a treat from start to finish and I highly recommend that everyone see it.
