Storyline

Jesse is picked on at school and had no friends until Leslie, the new girl, befriends him and they begin to come really close.

But it's up to Jesse to remember what Leslie taught him and to stay happy.

I'am glad it wasn't full of digital junk .
18 February 2007 | by homietimeSee all my reviews

I think the previews were misleading yes .But i was very glad that there was a story instead of a bunch of bad digital junk .Most of the people in the theater were crying. Sad yes but meaningful. Well written and very likable cast .Very brave .My girlfriend and i were the only two adults without kids and i thought this really is a kids movie but by the end i would have to say it was a little much for kids under 6 or 7 it is a very sad movie .The location was very pleasing .The two main girls were very well cast very engaging and you will see the boy in upcoming films as he is a very sellable kid .I would have to say well worth the price of a ticket
