Holy crap, did this thing stink. Tragically, the most famous people involved were Jeff Cohen (Chunk from The Goonies) and Ray Walston (Mr. Hand from Fast Times at Ridgemont High). I remember watching this on ABC as part of the Disney Sunday Night movie they used to show before the real movie at nine. No plot to spoil, except for the fact that Chun...er, Max kept inventing these amazing things yet still couldn't find popularity at school. The one really memorable scene puts him flying over the goal posts of his school football field in his invented flying bicycle. Double-photography was never a good thing. In typical Disney fashion, Max gets his wish and everybody walks off into the sunset of the happy Disney world where every ending is a happy one. This isn't even a guilty pleasure-I'd use this movie to punish a kid who misbehaved.

With apologies to Jeff and Ray.
