Full of love ❤️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my favorite movies! This coming from a Long Islander who grew up in the time this movie was filmed. There is nothing like growing up on LI. This movie brought me back to the time when I was young and growing up with FAMILY!! This movie just brings me back and I absolutely love it. All the actors who went on to become pretty famous did an awesome job!! If I ever won the lottery I would buy this house in a heartbeat!! Again love love love this movie!! Feel Good!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought rocket Gibraltar was an okay movie. Itâ(TM)s not like anything amazing. Itâ(TM)s not my type of my movie. At least I got to watch Macaulay culkin in his first motion picture. Bill Pullman was also in it too. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This is so well written and the grandfather and grandchildren make the movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Caught this one on TV years ago and I forgot exactly what it was that made me and Jim Genrich reference and laugh about this but whatever it was it was funny. Didnt they try and make a boat or something.

(And his grandchildren for-full it for him) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
