    I watched this movie 3 times in a weeks time and CAN NOT explain or pinpoint exactly what this movie has done to me. All I can say is NOT ONE day has gone by since I watched it that it has not crossed my mind. I think about Jay, Kim, Frosty & Brenda EVERYDAY!!! I recommend this movie 100%. It is a MUST see!
