  1. I actually shed a tear as I posted this one. Worse, I order ANOTHER copy of it, though it is also playing (free, if you have Prime) on Amazon. This is the laster version of it and I’m hoping it’s the one with all the bits in it that they sometimes cut out of it. We really LOVE this movie. I don’t mean like it. LOVE it. I want to take it to bed and hug it in my sleep.
