Storyline

Anne and "Poppy" Rose are the average American family, with three quirky kids. Anne has a good heart and gives lost cats and dogs a home - and one day also the orphan Jane, a problem child who already tried to kill herself once. At first Poppy is worried and wants to get rid of her, but with love and patience they finally manage to integrate her into the family. Just then Anne invites another orphan, the aggressive handicapped Jimmy-John, to their summer vacation. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Very good movie!
13 September 2000 | by srmccarthySee all my reviews

The summary tells enough of the story, so I will only say that I found this movie to be very enjoyable and entertaining!

It might draw some tears (both of joy and compassion). If you love children, or if you can simply understand the situations that concern blended family, you will most likely enjoy this movie.
