Audience Reviews for The Day Lincoln Was Shot


I saw it a loonnggg time ago, on TNT, or whatever network produced it, and I thought it was very good. I need to see it again. I am also quite proud of myself bc it is bc of my suggestion to Flixter that they add this movie to their site that they have added this movie to their site! That is the.... seventh movie that I have requested & that they've added bc of my requests! I'm still waiting for Flixter to add the feature, that I suggested, where they add a link to each webpage for each movie, that was added bc of a request by a Flixter user, & the link would lead to that users profile. AND, a list on that users profile that would have the movies added to the site bc of requests made by that user, or a link to a webpage where that list can be found! They acted like they couldn't be bothered when I initially made this request, maybe one day they will pull their head from their assess, who knows!!
