Good Disney movie.
19 April 2000 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie since I was a little kid, but I loved it then. I am not sure if I want to watch it as an adult. I will probably notice all the things that are wrong with it. As a movie for kids I would recommend this movie. If you are an adult I don't know if I can recommend it. But trust me your kids are gonna love it.
