I had never shown my 6 year old this movie because I had been hoping for the opportunity for him to experience the movie the way I had 30 years ago. The movie remains timeless and still captures the sincerity of the characters. My son laughed throughout the movie picking up on all the humor, and cried at the end - just like mom. We don't have many movies with boys as the main characters to it was a nice way for him to connect. It brought back a lot of memories for my husband and me. It was a wonderful family event to share and a wonderful opportunity.
