    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy

    And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
    Big Recommend!
