I can't remember the reason I decided to see this movie originally but loved it the first time I saw it and have watched it many times over the years. I've loved Mark Miller as an actor but was not aware of his writing ability until this movie. I liked how in depth he wrote the main characters and it had me rooting for the "bad guys." It's a great movie for families and kids. When I'm feeling down or having a bad day, I can watch this and feel great afterwards.

"Savannah Smiles is a classic, all-time favorite, childhood movie! If I am ever sad or unhappy I know watching this movie will bring my spirits up. I have to look far and wide to find it but it is worth it. Every weekend as a child my dad would take us to rent a video and we would always choose Savannah Smiles. There is nothing more precious than the relationship Savannah builds with these two "crooks" bootsy and alvie,I cry everytime I watch it! My kids deserve to cry too...Please re-release this show, there is hardly any good entertainment left these days for families."
Please make Savannah Smiles again!

"One of my first memories as a child was of watching Savannah Smiles with my twin. We both love this movie. As we've just entered into adulthood, we'd love to own a copy of this movie to take with us when we leave. Each time I see this movie, I laugh, I cry, and I love it more and more. It's such a wonderful, wholesome movie; no sex, violence, or drugs in it. Not many movies are made this way anymore. My parents' copy of this movie is one that is getting worn out from so much viewing. I've probably watched it 200 times. But it never gets old. If anyone reads this that can get this movie brought back into my hands, I'd be greatly appreciative. I told my family that all I want for Christmas for the rest of my life is this movie. And they've looked everywhere, but come up empty-handed. Will you please re-release this movie for all those people that get a warm feeling in their heart when they see it?"

"Savannah Smiles is a five-star movie beyond any doubt. It is the kind of clean, entertaining, well-told story that all children's movies should be. There is very little foul language in it, so the PG rating is deserved; otherwise this has all the ingredients of a G movie that can keep an audience of all ages interested.The PFE disc, however, is miserable. I have seen better quality on Japanese region-free video CD's. Can you say huge boxy pixels boys and girls? The graininess of the disc is beyond grainy. It's like a 4th or 5th generation VHS copy, or like satellite TV in snow or heavy rain. The sound and washed-out color match the grain. I strongly recommend a high quality DVD player if you wish to view the PFE disc without video hang-ups. I tried several players before it actually cooperated with one. This is a story that a high-dollar studio needs to buy rights to, then remaster in the best format available and ask whatever price they want. From what I have seen on web auction sites, and what I have seen from PFE, the next authoring studio of Savannah Smiles could easily get their asking price, even if it is slightly beyond reason."
