Johnny Bull and Kathy Bates
22 March 2009 | by pdlngrb-1See all my reviews

My husband and I loved this film and always hoped to see it on TV again. We did tape it but it is primitively done as we had just gotten a video recorder. This was the first time we had seen Kathy Bates and could not help but wonder if she was mentally deficient. What a wonderful job of acting! Have not checked IMDb yet but have always expected it to be listed on her credits when her work has been listed. This was a wonderful story. Funny and sad. Have never seen her is a really bad movie but felt that her acting here was exceptional. Hope that someone can convince the powers that be to put it on TV again or maybe on Netflix
