Classic Paul story4/12/2013
In the movie, Terry meets up with Steve (Elias Koteas), a guy in a wheelchair & the next thing we know he is being taken home, meeting Steve's sister Rose (Kozlowski), & helping out at the center for the neighborhood kids. The formula is fairly obvious, but the point is not whether Terry is going to find his redemption but how he is going to pull it off.
As far as I am concerned this is a classic film that ranks up there with It's a Wonderful Life. It has it's sad moments but is for the most part upbeat and funny. It is Paul Hogan at his best. I just wish they would put it out on DVD. If you are a Paul Hogan fan you can't help but love this film.
