Ahh, childhood memories...
20 June 2004 | by (CSRA, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I remember this film as one of the first I saw that showed kids doing something creative, while slightly misbehaving, and using their intelligence. I'd love to see it again, to compare how it measures up to the memory. The old "Wonderful World of Disney" made-for-TV movies of the week were simple, sappy (by today's jaded standards) fare that were honest family entertainment. Today, (to quote another theatrical character) entertainment is demented madmen running around in ski-masks hacking up young virgins. Gone (unfortunately) are the days where escapist entertainment without political or religious overtones can be seen, and enjoyed for the storytelling quality alone.
