Lone Star Kid

Author: (drakehome) from United States

Lone Star Kid is a surprisingly good film. It is a recounting of a true story in which a young boy is elected mayor of a small Texas community. The script is well-written, with dialogue that seems very natural. The acting is fresh and genuine, and the Texas accents are accurate. I feel certain some of the actors are not professionals, but some are indeed veterans. (It is always a pleasure to see James Earl Jones.) This movie is less than 90 minutes in length, and it was clearly made on a small budget, but it was made with sincerity and heart. Produced by "Happy Days" alumni Ron Howard and Anson Williams, it is a good family film that, yes, even adults can enjoy.

Ok TV-movie, but eh eh ....

Author: Sean Richard McCarthy ( from United States

This is a cute after school special for children, but I doubt it will fire up the interest of an adult. By the ending titles, it seems to be a true story, however, it sure does leave you wondering! This short (1/2 movie) is ok, but I give it little promise except that perhaps someone will see the talent of Ron Howard (and I didn't)!
