One of the best kid movies of the 80's
11 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't listen to the above. This is one of the best pre-teen, teen-age movies of the mid-80's.

While watching this movie today as an adult you see the flaws, but as a kid this movie has it all. The kid who serves as the hero, the evil bank villain, the baseball team, the hot mom, everything. If you want to escape life for 2hrs, this is one of your best bets to do so. Great time for kids and adults alike. Peter Billingsley and his motorcycle are one of the best duos of our time.

Watch this movie and...

SAVE MIKE'S DOGHOUSE!!!
