I think this is a wonderful movie. My little 2 yr old grandson loves to 'watch' it. I dont know if its the little girls big eyes or what but he is enthralled by it. Stands there for 20 min without flinching..for a 2 yr old that is something!! The story is endearing. A real world people with real world issues and how they all come together as one big family. It teaches how to love someone even if they are different than you. They have something to give no matter who they are. Tolerance of differences and challenges when life plays the hard card, each of us can learn something from this movie.
