My husband & I love this movie, & all the comments about the wonderful cast & engaging story noted here are echoed by us. Fun chance to see Mary Kay Place & Brent Spiner in all-too-small roles, too. It was our first introduction to Christine Lahti & we became solid fans as a result; Blades is wonderful too, as is all the supporting cast. In response to xandejo's comment about the movie not being out on VHS or DVD, a little net research shows that it's out-of-print, but (usually used) copies on VHS are still out there & available--high priced ones at amazon.com, & cheaper ones at the moment on ebay. This film is charming & is definitely worth searching for! No DVD is available, unfortunately.
