In the aftermath of 9/11, this film portrays a community of American Arabs trying to live a normal life here in the US. But they are seen with suspicion by others. A heartwarming story of a man trying to live his life honorably in spite of how others want to now see him.

"Dead Zone" was a great series! In Season 3, Johnny gets a new love interest, Rebeccah. Finally he quits sniffing after Sarah. Rebeccah is definitely good for Johnny. He bonds with his son JJ. Some great episodes.

I loved watching this movie on TV when I was a kid. The little girl is adorable. Their friendship is adorable. The innocence of children and the prejudices of adults come into conflict here. I still love movie many, many years later.

I really didn't think I'd like this movie. Not my type of movie. But from the moment Renee Zellweger walked out into the Minnesota cold at the airport it had me hooked. I laughed so hard it had me crying at times. I have watched it three times already in one month. Love it!!

I found this movie totally endearing as Geraldine Page's mannerisms in it reminded me so much of my own mother -- her shuffling movements, her pocketbook, her determination. Really tugged on my heart.

Great suspense. Lots of twists and turns. Good cast. Five guys wake up in a warehouse. They have memory loss from a chemical that was released. Two were kidnapped, the others are kidnappers. Who is who?

Interesting interction of the lives of a number of very different Tel Avivians over the course of a few weeks. There's the property manager who seems heartless, the blind man, the single mother. All with very interesting interactions. The human insight and drama enacted are not soon forgotten!

I don't know why this can't be posted yet. I ordered one from Israel and it's in NTSC format so is available to be posted. UPC is not recognized.
