Audience Reviews for Walking Across Egypt


Nothing bad. A good film, despite sentimental, made for television. Ellen Burstyn and Jonathan Taylor-Thomas are a great due. Fresh.

This movie is great, full of inspiration and hope. Yet sometimes it does so too much, making the story somewhat corny. Overall the actors are really good, though, and the story is both dramatic and funny. And it's really good, so I recommend it.

Good performances, especially from Ellen Burstyn. It?s a good story, a little predictable but very well done. Burstyn pulls it all off though with her warm and well developed character.
