Great movie!
4 July 2002 | by (Newburyport, MA) – See all my reviews

"The Boy Who Loved Trolls" used to frequently air on the Disney Channel when I was young. Paul's line "Excuse me, do you know where I could find a troll?" remains in my memory to this day. Even though the video is out of print, there's probably a way to find it and maybe someday I will look into it.
