Movie Reviews

Warms the heart, if you overlook some slapstick moments...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was not a high-dollar production with big stars, but look at the huge number of positive reviews posted here. Mark Miller, producer, writer and actor, somehow found a way to touch the emotions of the audience. A couple of bumbling minor-league non-violent felons end up in possession of a runaway daughter belonging to a high-profile Utah political power couple. They first want the reward, but since they did not actually stage a kidnapping, they don't want to risk the rap. On the other hand, they are buying the kid food and baby-sitting and cleaning their hideout for her, so they feel they are owed something. During the course of the movie, the irresistable child, supposed to be age six but portrayed by a charmer who was slightly older, changes the men for the better. Her absence changes at least her mother for the better as well. There are a number of big laughs here, a greater number of chuckles, and a few moments for happy tears. I have to highly recommend it. In real life, lead actor Miller went on to marry the woman who played Savannah's mom, while his sidekick got featured roles in the "Police Academy" films. The lovely girl who starred, however, met a tragic end after a short unhappy life. (DO NOT TELL YOUR KIDS ABOUT HER FATE UNTIL THEY ARE TOO OLD TO WANT TO WATCH THE MOVIE ANYMORE. YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT IT VIA A FAMOUS ON-LINE "ENCYCL0PEDIA" IF YOU WANT TO. I WISH I HAD NOT.)"
