Quotes

Silvio Esposito: [reminiscing] Remember when we were kids? You used to have that 8 track player; you never let me touch it? Then, one night, mom and dad had been fighting again and I got so scared you'd knew the only way I'd calm down is if you'd let me listen.
Angelo Esposito: Bad Company. Number one album of the year. 1974.
Silvio Esposito: Bad Company. I fell asleep listening to that music, thinking my big brother was always going to look out for me.

Finally a real adventure with a message
30 March 2008 | by elle007See all my reviews

This movie was one of the best films I have seen in a long time! My kids loved it! It was nice to see a film that actually has a message as well as an adventure!

There are a lot of plot empty movies out there! More like crappy ones with not point! This is not one of them! It has something for everyone in it.

I saw this in the Sedona Film Festival and plan on going to it this week in the Phoenix Film Festival!

I am taking my kids and some of our friends and family! I can't wait to cry, laugh, and enjoy the ride this movie takes you on again! I recommend everyone go see it.
