Great movie!
28 May 2000 | by lubtxladySee all my reviews

Why was this not released on the big screen? It is an excellent, heart-touching, and funny movie, that will leave you laughing and crying. I am a big Mark Hamill fan and that was why I saw this movie. I rented it to see him but I will buy it because it is simply a wonderful movie. Members of my family, ranging in age from 8 to 47 have all loved it. I have already watched it 4 times and will watch it again whenever my spirits need a lift. Ellen Burstyn and Jonathan Taylor Thomas were supurb together. Rent then buy this movie...you will love it too!
