Emotional,a tear jerker
17 January 2004 | by LiloandStitch01See all my reviews

This,along with Color of Friendship and Tru Calling,is a tear jerker,a lot of people on the forum said they didn't have high expectations for this movie,to be honest,neither did I,then I saw it,I was crying all the way to the end,all the cast do a suburb job of bringing their characters to full vivid life,even Ricky Ullman as Roscoe,and the songs were beautiful,people really need to get the message of the movie,it's our flaws that make us human,perfection describes machines and programs(Like Loretta),so take my advise,watch this movie
