Near the beginning of the movie the two children and Uncle Bene are walking away from the Rose Bowl. As the camera pans back you can see crosses marked on the ground for where the actors are supposed to stand and walk. See more »
[the security guard is levitating at the ceiling where Tony left him]
Could you get me down please?
[Tia lowers him to the floor]
Thank you. Now, where are you going?
We're going in there.
Oh, no. No one goes in there without ID.

Good cast and interesting teenage characters sacrificed for yahoo thrills...
Disney's sequel to their not-bad 1975 hit "Escape To Witch Mountain" brings back Ike Eisenmann and Kim Richards as the teen-tykes from outer space, here battling wits and powers with villainous Bette Davis and Christopher Lee (and their chauffeur, Anthony James, who also played a chauffeur alongside Davis in "Burnt Offerings"!). Well-enough made, but the movie loses sight of what was so special about the first film (a kid's flick with the emphasis on character, not overtly outlandish special effects). Davis is alert and anxious, but she's practically smothered under the gaudy make-up and is left to chew the scenery without benefit of a strong script. Poor Christopher Lee has it even worse, blending into the foreground action while the kids steal all his scenes. The plotting gets too heavy in the final third, what with Los Angeles about to be decimated and delinquent children running amok, but the worst decision was to separate siblings Tony and Tia for much of the movie. Some good sequences, Jack Soo does nice work in a warm supporting bit, and a goat nearly saves the day (and gets a big "thank you" to boot!). ** from ****
