    Junior's Groove Is A Hidden Treasure

    Junior's Groove is simply the best movie that I have seen in years. I have watched it four times now and each time that I watch it, I find some little tidbit of information about the characters that I had missed in previous viewings. You can't can't leave the room for a minute or you will miss something important to the plot. Junior's Groove is a charming movie with an ending that sneaks up on you. The characters are well scripted and delightful. Amazing little pearl!
