Bigger than BEN HUR - through the eyes of a child!
30 October 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Memorable (for me) simply because it was the first time my parents had taken me to a major London Theater - the Odeon, Leicester Square, if I remember correctly.

Little Toot was a baby tugboat, a strong-willed if not pesky little guy who just plain refused to listen to his dad and ended up causing all sorts of maritime mayhem before being grounded. The thrill of that day, looking up seeing Little Toot battling the waves in pursuit of glory, circumstances causing him to be the last hope of rescue for an adrift liner in "the perfect storm," was seared on my mind for all time. I remember less about THE MATRIX!

I fell in love with movies that day. Grab a child and start the cycle again!
