Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Movie I purchased this movie as a Christmas gift for my cousin. She has been looking for this movie for years and had been unable to find it. I went to Walmart.com and searched and found it right away. When she received it she cried she was so happy. The movie was scheduled for delivery on Tuesday December 17 and she received it on Monday December 16. Thanks Walmart for making my cousins day and her Christmas a Merry one.
