Did You Know?


Although the man in the clip from Paige's wedding resembles Paul Villadolid, he is in fact a longtime friend of her brother's, whom she met about a year after leaving the Journey. See more »


Ann Richards: We are taught to learn the names of the kings and queens of England, the Presidents of the United States, the dates of which events happened. But this person
[her hands folded and are close to her chest, uses her thumbs to gently point to herself]
Ann Richards: this core of who you are and what your value system is, is always going to be there no matter what. I don't think that we're train very often to think about that.

unlike anything I have ever seen before
17 October 2003 | by BDB116See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely amazing. I have never been effected by a movie like I was after viewing this. I laughed, I cried, I thought long and hard about myself and where I was going in my life. There is such a strong message in this, I recommend this to everyone I talk to. But to attempt to describe it to anyone diminishes the film. It means something different to everyone and it is truly something you need to see. And luckily, it is now available on DVD, so everyone will be able to enjoy this film as much as I have. Demand that your local retailer or video store get this in stock! You will not regret the time you spend with Eric on his journey, nor will you will regret the time you spend after watching it thinking about your own journey in your life and exactly where you want to go. I cannot wait to see what Eric does next.
