WOW!!! I know quite a few more that watched it and they weren't even asked if they did. We talked about it at our Wednesday morning Bible Study and they all enjoyed it - even our husbands watched it with us.

FABULOUS news, Angie! How exciting! I've talked to many people who watched and loved it, including my mom and my mother-in-law. This is just thrilling news!

I was able to dvr the movie and I absolutely LOVED it!! The book helped spur me to search even more to find my dad after I had gone over 9 years without any contact when my parents divorced.Most definitely bring out the Kleenex though if anyone watches it!

ps. congrats to you for being able to drag Gary to see the show. I think I'd have to bribe mine with at least 3 guy movies in a row and then some to get mine to go with me.

God can take care of Himself.
People were so upset about the Golden Compass and it's a flop.
And look at this!
Awesome.
