Great Movie!!!
2 August 2003 | by Two1980See all my reviews

This movie is one I really have enjoyed since i first saw it in 1990. Mickey Rooney did a great job as Elmer.. If you love movies that is a tear jerker and that is centered around the holiday season, you will love this movie.

I would highly recommend this film...
