Most natural movie about kids ever
23 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on "ON" TV, before cable, and taped it (horrible print). I was in my late 30's and had a clinic for LD kids, and showed Kenny and Co. to some of them. Every kid, mainly boys, loved it, and wanted to watch it again and again. It is the only movie that just shows, through episodic events, what it was like to grow up in the 70's and before, when kids actually could play outside without adult supervision or organized mini-professional sports. It just covers their lives for a few days before Halloween, in their school, after-school free play, first crushes, building racers, dealing with a dog that must be put to sleep, dealing with a bully, and planning their trick-or-treat hi-jinx. Lots of mischief that the PTA would probably have frowned on, but nothing really bad, and everything funny and real, without feeling forced. There was a refreshing innocence that has been lost since then, largely due to the media and the internet. But much of the essence of the film still reflects what most kids have to deal with in their lives, albeit in a more programmed environment. I have never known anyone who disliked this little known gem. I see that Anchor Bay has stopped producing it and prices are going up. If you have kids or work with them in some capacity, do yourself and them a big favor and purchase this to share with them. I practically can guarantee you or they won't be sorry. A truly unique and wonderful film. And even more amazing, the director and writer, Don Coscarelli, was 19 when he made this film in 1977.
