Movie Review Monday - Just One This Week

A long time ago we had rented Because of Winn Dixie from Netflix but we never got around to watching it, so I sent it back. Just recently, we were at MovieStop and they had it for only $1.99 so I picked it up. I figured, if the kids didn't like it, we were only out two bucks, so what the heck. We watched it yesterday and I must say, that was $2 well spent.

Because of Winn Dixie - A little girl and her dad move to a new town where he is the preacher and she has no friends. It is just the two of them until a dog, which the little girl names Winn Dixie, comes into their lives. The dog is rough around the edges but turns out to be a blessing in disguise. I really liked it and for the most part, the kids did too. For awhile even Sara sat watching the dog reek havoc. 4.5 stars... I'd have given it 5 if my kids had sat watching the whole thing.
