Who is daddy, really?
29 March 2001 | by vr66See all my reviews

I missed the first 15mins.. but a widow with two kids goes to the father's home town of Bailey's Mistake and the more questions she asks, the more confused she gets (and the more frustrated WE get!) The kids come across a goat that will NOT leave them alone... flying children, healing powers.. an adult neighbor with a tail. A few things are revealed... but not enough by the ending. I think it's a movie about finding your roots and finding a home to call your own with friends. No matter how oddball. It is a very nice movie.. But not one I would have chosen to pay to see if it was in theater. A good idea, but not up to Disney's usual standards of making sense.
