Tired of the drudgery of his daily routine, young Jimmy shouts out, "I wish time would stop!" Somehow, his wish gets heard by the master clock, and everyone (except Jimmy) is frozen in their tracks. Observing this catastrophe is a magical astronomer, who sends his daughter Aurora to talk Jimmy into helping her undo the damage before the evil Mr. Fig siezes the opportunity to take over the world. As Jimmy and Aurora travel to the end of the world to replace the Golden Globe in the master clock, they pass through strange new places, all the while with Mr. Fig trying to stop them on their mission.

I liked the song about beans
6 July 1999 | by (Oakland, CA.) – See all my reviews

This is ostensibly a children's film. I would only show it to a child if I wanted to give them a good example of nearly worthless film making. I say nearly worthless because I did enjoy the song about beans. It really is too bad that little Jimmy's wish to stop time did not apply to Lewis and the rest of the people responsible for this "film", thereby preventing them from continuing with production.
