Well!!!!
6 July 1999 | by Brandy-28See all my reviews

I thought the story was good, for what he was trying to do. I did not like Luke, the blond in this movie. I thought his acting was awful. The beginning of this movie was really stupid, leading up until Luke finally ran into Jon. By the way Jon was beautiful from the face all the way down. The best part was the last 1/2 hour leading up to the end, which is very touching and you will probably leave with a tear. A must see!!!!! Very good.
