It's yellow and it drives to Canada, guess what?
11 July 2003 | by DJE-fanSee all my reviews

I really, really like this film and not only because one of my favorite actresses (Catherine Bell) is in it. The story is wonderful and sweet and the actors have done a great job. Especially Jason Beghe, who portrays Mike Donahue. You really feel for him when he's dragged all the way to Canada with this lady and still tries to be polite. The end of the movie is also great (o how I love happy endings!). I hope the real story ended this way too. If you can't get enough of Catherine, you should watch the TV show J.A.G. sometimes. She really has a great role in that one. By for now! AN
