One of the best I have seen.
11 April 2001 | by krmillvaleSee all my reviews

I remember watching this as a kid. I remember being an excellent movie. I would love to own it on video. I am having a problem locating it. When I ask at video stores they seem not to have a clue. Any suggestions? I was surprised to see it here. So at least I know some one other than me knows its out there.
