| A true classic
My family watched this movie on tv years ago, and actually taped it on our VCR. We would all watch this film ever so often, and would all end up in tears with boxes of tissues used by the end. We somehow lost the tape over the years, but still always talk about it. It was a film that was so touching, I haven't seen a film that compares to it in all these years since it came out. I actually have a son now, and his name is Rhyan. I never thought about it until one day my family was sitting around talking about Ricky Bell, that I realized my son's name is the same name as the boy in the movie. The part when Ricky is laying in the hospital bed brings me to tears every time, such good acting in this movie. I give it a perfect 10, a definate classic.
