A Good Movie, Even Better If You're 8 Years Old
4 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the movies I am fond of because I grew up watching it. I recently watched it again. It does hold up still as an entertaining movie, even though I am not 8 years old anymore. However, I am sure it would be more entertaining for an 8 year old. I am finally going to record over it.
