Modern, outrageously comic tear-jerker extraordinaire

See it if You love the original classic but always yearned for the classic’s emotional size without the fustian. Terrific acting. Jason splendid.

Don't see it if You don’t want to both laugh and cry.

Clever, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like drama 'light' done in that unique way which HVSF does so well with a great cast and an amusing touch. This is well worth the trip.

Don't see it if If you like your drama 'straight' with a large cast and all characters 'in character' and you can't be bothered to travel to Cold Spring NY.
