A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
The Henderson family adopt a friendly Sasquatch after accidentally running him over on a hunting trip, but have a hard time trying to keep him away from the authorities and an eccentric hunter who's determined to catch "Bigfoot".
A young boy is found wandering without any memory of who he is. A family takes him in and begin to look for clues to help him find his way home. In the meantime, they notice that the boy seems to have certain special abilities, not usually found in kids his age, or even fully-grown adults. Written by

During the police chase on the tollway DARYL is driving on the wrong side of the tollway while the police are chasing alongside on the correct side of the highway. While DARYL is driving into oncoming traffic he decides to get off the tollway. On the police radio one of the policemen is heard saying that he (DARYL) is taking an off-ramp. Actually, since DARYL is driving into oncoming traffic he would be taking an on-ramp going the wrong way. See more »
Yes, it is a movie divided into two uneven parts. Yes, the first part is more likable and low-key, while the second one goes for a few too many action scenes (although it does have some thrilling moments). But overall, the movie handles a difficult subject with a touching simplicity (and NOT simple-mindedness), is collectively well-acted, and good fun all around. (***)
