Real Life Drama, but misses its target audience
5 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

A real life drama concerning a brother, his three sisters, and their hugely successful manure business. Perfect fare for the early 80's as the kids rake in the dough and show where a little entrepeneurship can take you. However the movie moves slowly and becomes very complicated when KIDCO runs afoul of the IRS. It's here most likely where the target audience of children will find themselves lost as tax codes, etc are reviewed ad nauseum. This movie was filmed in 1982, but was shelved until being released in 1984.
