A great family film
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer of this movie on one of my Sailor Moon Movies,I had to see if this movie was one of the greatest,and it was. And after buying this movie on DVD,it was the best. It was a great movie,and it had a great storyline. But what this movie kinda tells us are two important things. First,we all have a talent on what we want for the future,and it's a great gift from God. Second,we should never accuse anyone for something they did,and we did that,we would hurt ourselves,and feel bad about it. And those are the most importants things to follow in life. The movie also features the voices of Robert Loggia as Grandpa,Brady Bluhm,Debi Drewberry,Ryan O'Donahue, Lara Cody, Michael McConnohie famous for Transformers and Vampire Hunter D,Randall Montgomery, Matt K. Miller famous for Tenchi Muyo, and Sean Young as Sister Alois. In closing, this is the #1 family movie to add to your collection and keep for generations to come. You will see what I mean when you see this.
