I have always liked this movie and my Daughter wanted to watch it the other night and I thought it would be a great movie for the movie blog. This movie is a story of love and friendship and is very touching.
Howard Zeiff did well with this move I looked him up and I don’t think I have seen any of his other movies they are all older movies and he has retired from directing. I actually never knew there was a my girl 2 apparently he retired after that movie was produced I think I will watch it might be good.
