Gary Coleman cheese!

So no one has reviewed this thing yet? Travesty!

Gary Coleman stars as Joey Seymour, a little boy whose lone desire is to join the Boy Scouts. He's an orphan (who would love to be adopted by a loving family) who's been shuffled around from one foster home to the next. And although shunned by the other boys at first, he eventually wins them over.

Let's be honest. This is really sappy and cheesy. You can guess how it ends. But you know what? It's also a lot of fun. From Joey's proclamation to his mother hailing from "Pepsi Cola, Florida" to also describing his grandfather as having "the heaves." Awesome stuff!

This film also features a bunch of cameos from child stars of the past. If you look closely you'll see Robert Trujillo as a kid. You may know him today as the bassist for Metallica. Yep, that's really him.

Why aren't any of Gary Coleman's films on DVD? Shouldn't there be a cheap box set with this film, "Jimmy The Kid" and "On The Right Track?" Yes. Yes there should be.

I recently made a DVD-r of this film from my old pre-recorded VHS tape. If you have it, you should to. And watch this film! It's good fun.
