So cute
12 April 1999 | by jillcanSee all my reviews

This movie was one of the cutest movies I have ever seen. The plot is funky and I really enjoyed it. I taped it but I taped over it. I wish I hadn't. I will tape it when and if it comes on again. Just watch it. It is very enjoyable for kids, especially.
