This is a very well done heart-warming comedy with an excellent cast and director.
13 February 2003 | by gelmorejrSee all my reviews

This is the first time Director Vicky Jenson has done a live action film, and it will definitely not be the last. A wonderful cast including Harland Will1ams, Talia Shire, Ethan Phillips and several other very talented actors, including a very funny 5 year old boy makes this a must see. Already on the festival circuit at Sundance and soon to be at SXSW in Texas, don't miss it if you get a chance.
