Josh, Jim and I went to see it tonight and it was a really sweet family film to watch, especially during the holidays. How nice to enjoy the clever dialogue, the Maine scenery, and the homespun theme about friendship. The farm scenes made us want to "be" there. We laughed, and Jim and I cried. (ok, we are criers at movies, but others were sniffling as well.) The animal voices done by Julia Roberts, Oprah and other stars added so much to the film.
When was the last time you went to a movie where the audience applauded at the end?
