    "As somebody with a large family, I appreciate movies that can give me the same feeling of love and familiarity that a large family provides. With Pollyanna, I was able to watch a movie that greatly expressed the themes of love, family and togetherness that I normally feel around my family. "

    "Father and Daughter movies are always so charming to me. One of the classics in my collection is Father of the Bride. I recently bought my brother in law the 15th Anniversary Edition DVD and I think it's a great movie for him and his family. He has a couple of little girls and they are so attached to him. What made this movie so charming is the charisma that Steve Martin exhibits. He's such a likable actor. When you give Steve a team of Diane Keaton and Martin Short, that's a lot of comedic experience and acting chops on the same screen. This is what really makes this movie stand out to me. The on screen chemistry from all these actors to play out a whimsical warm hearted story filled with laughs and pure goodness. It's a movie I watch with my own family often and one I know my brother in law will enjoy with his daughters for years to come."

    "While this is a good movie it does not feature a ton about families. It is worth seeing for most people but if they are looking for a story about families they are better off to look elsewhere."
