See Spot Run is a good movie.
2 September 2002 | by bjbjmcaSee all my reviews

This is a good movie. Sorry it isn't for everyone. The actors act and the director directed. Funny sequences were funny. The theater was filled with laughter. Isn't that what living is about. True laughter and tears? David Arquette has found a fan. Thank the makers of this movie for not being pretentious.
