We Loved This Movie
27 February 2005 | by mckchausseSee all my reviews

We enjoyed the cheesy acting! We recorded this movie years ago, and watched the VHS tape so much, we have worn it out. We've invited friends and relatives to watch it with us. I can't speak for them, whether they enjoyed it or now. My wife loved all the songs, she can sing them verbatim. We've been looking for this movie to own on DVD for years since our VHS tape is fading out.

I can not really explain the effect this movie had on us, other than we love Vincent. I have a Vincent at my shop, and I think of this movie every time I call for him. I wish he could see this movie.
