Great Movie
15 March 2003 | by yeahman84usSee all my reviews

In my opinion this is a great family film! I never cared about the books, but I loved the TV show, and when the movie came out, it was a must see, and I've just recently bought a copy of it. If you have kids, it's a must have. If you don't have kids, it's a must have!
