This was one of the best movies I remember seeing when I was younger. Please let me know if there is any way I could purchase it so I could bring back those fond memories. One of best parts I liked in the movie is the parts for the little girl. Like when she saw the skunk and called it kitty.Another with her is how she always called her dad big Jim.I think overall most all the actors and actress's acted very well in this movie.Again thank you for this chance to voice my opinion on this movie and its actors.Also let me know if there is anyway that I can purchase a copy of this movie for myself. I have tried to be nice by putting my comments in about this movie but you seem to have to many guidelines for your comments. Try not to have so many rules and you will more than likely get more of them!
