|Two boys beautiful friendship one summer||Tearjerker Fan 06/15/2013 |
| A beautiful movie you can watch again and again. A little boy who is physically challenged shows us how to dream big. His friend shows us what it means to be a friend. So many life's truths in one movie. Jim Carrey is a moving narrator. Bring a tissue.|
