I remember this movie and I liked it!
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Granted, I was a 16 year old boy with raging hormones when this made-for-TV movie came out, but I really, really enjoyed this movie.

I remember falling more in luv/lust with Melissa Sue Anderson and Mary McDonough (Erin Walton) was pretty hot too! How cool would it be to have abilities like that?!?!?

I thought the movie was very cool, very original (especially for that time) and I enjoyed seeing the actresses I knew from Little House and The Waltons in such different roles.

If this movie was available on DVD today I would buy it without hesitation!
