Luv'd this movie!
19 January 2004 | by metzler87323See all my reviews

I first watched this movie when I was only 10-11 yrs old. This movie hit me when I was a very impressionable little girl and taught me about how shoplifting is wrong. Although the movie was only an hour long, it stayed with me all these years and would love to show a copy of it to all adolescents.
