I loved the movie!
22 November 2002 | by godsgirl425See all my reviews

I loved Hometown Legend. In fact my sister and brother are watching right now.. It is a very good and clean movie. I love Alabama and they give a good inpreation of it there. haha They directed it very well. I loved "Left Behind' and when I saw that the director from "Left Behind" directed it I knew I would like this movie. God Bless, Kathryn
