The first and best Henry Aldrich movie.
8 October 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Henry runs for class president and wins. Unfortunately, his opponent (an aspiring Chicago alderman?) pulls some sneaky shennanigans and Henry is accused of stuffing the ballot box. With help from his pal Dizzy, Henry is determined to clear his name. There's an absolutely hilarious scene involving a mouse in an airplane.
