I just recently purchased the DVD of this film from Amazon.ca, and it arrived today. I watched it for the first time in several years, having last seen it on a VHS copy my Mom taped off Superchannel some years back. The movie is quite original, with the basic plot being that Ralph gets conned out of his father's good stamp by Tommy Tricker and in the process, discovers a valuable stamp album stored in Australia. The whole idea of a live action film involving stamp travel is quite ingenious in my mind. The location details in China and Australia are quite good, as are all the special effects. The acting is also, in my opinion, very well done, and very believable. I won't spoil the ending for you, but I think you will find the ending to be an interesting twist. Either way, the adventures, acting and special effects will keep you enthralled from start to finish. If you see this movie in a store, you have to buy it.
