Goofs

When Rex and Jeannette are looking at the stars in the middle of the night, she chooses one and he says it is Venus. Not possible because Venus is only seen in the early morning in the east, or early evening in the west. See more »

Quotes

Rex: Rich city folks live in fancy apartments but their air's so polluted they can't even see the stars. We'd have to be out of our minds to trade places with any of them.

Woody at his Best!
10 January 2018 | by metta1See all my reviews

It was not easy for Woody to play this character, but he did an outstanding job!!

I was transfixed by this movie despite the sadness due to the very good acting of all members of the family. But it revolved around Woody.

I totally disagree with the bad review I just read. I never read the book so maybe that is why?
