All Time Classic
31 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the oldest and greatest films I've ever seen, I used to watch it all the time when I was younger. It is about a orphanage owner who struggles to keep it running but one day he and one of the orphans come across an invisibility mechanism which helps them fight the bad guys that are trying to shut them down. It's an all time classic, I loved this movie a lot, not just because it was one of my first but it was an all round family movie which could make me laugh and cry. I'd give it a perfect 10.0
