Movie Reviews

An Exceptional Film
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Set in the state of Georgia, James Garner renders a powerful and very sensitive performance of a Judge who following the death of his wife, retires from the bench. He tries to with-draw from life esconced in his own grief and bitterness. The mys-tery surrounding an old friend's refusal to accept the Congressional Medal of Honor, and the personal crises in the lives of those closest to him, compel him to step back into the mainstream of society . As he reaches beyond his own pain and into lives of others, he not only becomes an anchor for them, but finds a renewed reason for living, himself.
The supporting cast is superb, esp. Bill Cobbs and Ruby Dee.
This is an exceptional film, providing wholesome entertainment."
5 stars all the way!
Alan R. Holyoak | 12/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"James Garner plays a retiring judge who becomes an unwilling, but interested player in a story centered around the government's plan to award the Medal of Honor to an African American man because of heroic actions during WWII's Battle of the Bulge. Here's the catch -- the man doesn't want to have anything to do with medal! Garner is convinced that he should intervene and persuade the man to accept the medal. A story of racism, bitterness, decepetion, and revelation unfolds as the movie progresses. Be sure to watch for an interesting, unexpected plot twist toward the end.This is top-notch drama, and a real treat for James Garner fans. 5 stars all the way! Watch this movie, you'll be glad you did. This is the "Hallmark Hall of Fame" at its best!Alan Holyoak"
Pleasing drama

(5 out of 5 stars)

"James Garner stars as a retired judge who is widowed but has a wonderful housekeeper who still keeps him in line. All he wants to do is spend his days fishing and live without any hassles. A call for help from family for an old friend and he finds himself caught up in the human drama that leads to his own renewal. Great performances by James Garner and Judith Ivey and beautiful cenima make this movie a delight."
Decoration Day - Great Movie

"Decoration Day is a great movie - lots of heart and such a fine family show. It reminds us not to make assumptions when we don't have all the facts and shows the great value of friendship and family."
