I have heard of it, not seen it.

It tanked at the box office, that doesnt mean its a bad movie it just didnt come across well in the commercials compared to early trailers I saw of it

Let us know what you think

I cried when I watched it! I love it, we own it. I tend to think of it as a holiday movie.

I wanted to see it from the first time I saw a commercial on TV! I watched most of it in Indy at my brother in law's. It was late and they missed recording the first 5-10 minutes. I couldn't get it off my mind so I bought it. I watched it and LOVED it!
As my husband said, "You liked it because you're a kid at heart." Hmmm...that's not so bad, is it? I'll be watching it again. And...he said that he'd like to see it, too. He came home when it was nearly over and chose not to get into it. He said he'd watch it with me another time.
