This is My Life
26 November 1999 | by blond61289See all my reviews

I first saw this film when i was 11 years old. I didn't realize it would have this big of an impact on me. You see, this is the story of my life. My mother was pregnant with me while my father(who passed away when I was 6 monthes old) was dying of bone cancer. His one wish was to see the birth of me, just like bob in the movie. He didnt chronicle his life, as this character did in the movie, so unfortunately all I have are a few old wedding pictures and his old sports trophies. For some strange reason seeing this movie(which i own now) was like knowing a part of him. I reccomend this touching movie to all who have lost loved ones!
