I just love this movie so much. It had such a loving story of a friendship between a boy and his new friend a rodent named Ben. I am a very big rodent fan and cried at the end when Ben was hurt. I also saw the movie "Willard" which is where Ben was first introduced. I can't understand why anyone would dislike a movie like this one. If you didn't like this movie then you are a person with no heart and didn't get the meaning of the story behind the movie. I could watch this movie over and over again and still feel the same way every time and that is touched by the love the two characters shared. I give this movie a high 10 and recommend it to everyone!
