Nice movie, but a little confusing
13 December 1999 | by paullee-3See all my reviews

1st of all, I didn't know the title of this movie when I was watching it. If I had known, I probably wouldn't watch it.

This movie is about many things; it starts with the problems of Tory with her parents, then moves on to the problems of Tory's father and then to Archie's problems. So, it is a little hard to see who is the main character in the movie until towards the end. But it does a good job of portraying the problems of those different people, and people solving their problems with the help of others.

Watch it, but don't keep your expectations high.
