Quotes

Sam Field: What do I have to do to get you to forgive me?
Zoey Russell: [nonchalantly, with an innocent wide-eyed but slightly crafty "I've got you over a barrel here, don't I?" smile] A **pony** would be nice...
Sam Field: [disbelievingly] A **PONY** - -?
Zoey Russell: [nods and shruggily raises her eyebrows in a casual "Well, you **asked**" manner]
Sam Field: [with a short mirthless chuckle] You're one heck of a negotiator.
[pauses to think about this]
Sam Field: I could use you with Del Campo...!

Excellent
26 December 2003 | by jazmin2952See all my reviews

I think this movie is excellent--I watch it ever year at christmas time. It gives you a little fantacy to believe in that someday some dreams may come true. The little girl believes that her daddy is coming home soon and thinks the angel is going to help her.
