An unhomogenized combination of formulaic family entertainment and cornpone Southern fable.

Sincere rather than cynical.

A whimsical family film about longing and belonging told with gentle humanity.

February 18, 2005
A dreary, uninspired tale.
February 18, 2005
This is a movie to take your kids to.
