A movie well worth the watch, 14 November 2012
Author: alexbogue3889 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

If you want to watch a good family film, this film is for all of you. I loved this movie very much. Losing your mom and dad in a nasty accident and being sent to live with an aunt and uncle you've never met once in your life is never at all an easy situation. This film also teaches you that you shouldn't believe everything you hear about one person and jumping to conclusions without getting all your facts first. I was also taught about fathers unintentionally damaging the self-esteem of their children. Through all the struggles in life, happiness and love shines through it all. To all of you that want to watch a great American movie, this one is for all of you at home. It's definitely worth your money to buy on DVD.
