A sweet little charmer but, dare I say, a tad overrated? Please forgive me! ;) After reading such glowing reviews and how much it was recommended, I bought this movie for a 5-year-old girl, before I'd screened it myself. So, when finally able to see it after the fact, as I was watching it, I gradually began to wonder if a certain sad thing was going to happen in the movie and, honestly, I cringed when it did. But I won't give away this part of the storyline which, I felt, was too sad for very young children, perhaps under 10 years old. The film, still, more than compensates as fine, above-average family fare (I've been an Aidan Quinn fan for decades), though it's not necessarily as brilliant and life-changing as some of the reviews state (not to mention an unexpectedly subpar DVD transfer).
