nice childhood memory
3 August 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen the movie lately, but when I was a kid, before I saw E.T., it was my most favorite film to watch. I laughed my ass off many times, great kids movie. If you get the chance, watch it! With your kids. Its hysterical.

The ways for him to get the money to buy this transistor radio. I remember seeing the radio and thinking: I want one like that as well. Knowing how it was to be a poor kid, and becoming very inventive to get the things you want. I could see a lot of me in him. Brings back memories.

Good family film, worth watching
