Click here to win a "Because of Winn-Dixie" hamperSynopsis:
Based on the best selling children's book, Because Of Winn-Dixie tells the story of Opal, a lonely young girl who adopts an orphaned dog and names him Winn-Dixie (after the supermarket where she found him). The bond between Opal and her special companion brings together the people in a small Florida town and heals her own troubled relationship with her father.
Winn-Dixie guides Opal into places where magic dozes under a coat of dusty disappointment and awakens the people hiding there. Things begin to change day by day under the summer sun - in a funky pet store, a musty library, a drab mobile home, a ramshackle house and a convenience store-turned temple of worship.
What the critics are saying:
"A simple, slow-moving, shaggy-dog story that has enough charm to keep us involved but not enough dramatic tension to rise above the ordinary."- Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer"It has old-fashioned and heartwarming written all over it, in heavy black Magic Marker."- Anita Gates, New York Times
"To Winn-Dixie's great credit, both as a book and as a dandy, dignified movie, there's nothing condescendingly lesson-like in the wisdom India acquires."- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
