James Gaddas
23 December 2000 | by MrsAnthonyHowellSee all my reviews

This film has my personal favourite actor in it. That is James Gaddas. I liked this film and I think it is very good. It was not my first choice of a movie but I did enjoy it. I found parts of it quite hard to understand but this is maybe because I am only 15. Laura
