Papa's Angels
28 December 2006 | by dalefromsantacruzSee all my reviews

This movie will bring out every emotion you have in you. It is a great cast of characters and it showcases the awesome talents of Scott Bakula. Who in my opinion is the best actor we have on this planet today. If you have ever seen an episode of Quantum Leap you would know what I was talking about. Anyway thank you again Mr. Bakula for bringing another great piece of work for the world too enjoy. This is also one of the best Holiday movies I have ever had the pleasure to of watched. It takes you down a road of varied emotions and then brings it home at the end with hope and prosperity. Again I say thank you, thank you, thank you Mr. Bakula I hope that one day you get the recognition that you so deserve as the most talented actor that the world has ever had the pleasure to have....
