Warm and fuzzy
9 April 2001 | by dinky-4See all my reviews

While a notch above the movies that Don Knotts used to do, back in the 1960's, this fictionalized account of a true incident has the same sort of "small town" appeal which once filled drive-in movies with rows of pick-up trucks. As a whole, the movie isn't notable, but it has a number of good parts, both in terms of dialog and acting, and it leaves you with the kind of warm-and-fuzzy feeling you don't often find in movies these days.
