Doorman-Narrator: Well, nobody can stop time forever, Paul.
Paul: What do you mean? Why not?
Doorman-Narrator: Well, when time stops, nothing grows. Not a plant, not animals, not even boys.
Paul: You mean you can't stop them? They can still blow up the bridge?
Doorman-Narrator: If time doesn't go forward, you won't be able to grow up.

I finally found it!
11 July 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a little girl. I was 2 when it was made so it was on TV until I was about 7. It included everything from bad guys to mermaids and trolls. It's funny because its a movie basically about growing up, this kid is holding on to magic and being a kid but at the same time it is telling you to believe and keep yourself young at heart. I don't quiet remember everything only because I was so young but from what I do it was amazing. See it if you can, great film, great fun. I have spent years looking for this movie and finally bought it off ebay. Little cheesier than I remember lol but it still rocks. Finding this was like finding an old friend.
