Whole hearted film!

The movie itself is very good, and is a huge part of my childhood! I feel like it's appropriate for children of all ages, as it gives you a lot of laughs with it's humor and jokes! The ending is wholesome, as it teaches viewers to never give up hope, and to leave no one behind.
