A must-see for writers. Heart-warming story. Great characters.
Really enjoyed this movie. Just beautful scenery and pleasant, funny summer fun.
One of the best Socially Redeeming movies I have seen in years. Mr. Freeman , as far as I am concerned, has never been in a movie, that didn\'t allow me to be disappointed in any way. He , himself, is an example of a \"Socially Redeeming\" Man. I met Mr. Freeman, by chance, in a little town where filming was being done, and his was a gracious, kind, considerate person, of the locals. And welcomed their presence.
