loved it
2 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My kids loved this movie when they were young. The watched the tape so much it broke into! The movie is based for children and the way my kids loved it, made it a great movie! they went around singing the song all the time. even there friends loved this movie. they are 18 and 19 now and wish they could find it on DVD. I have a 9 yo now and would love to let her watch it to see how she would react. We have done searches for this movie and are unable to find it. It is a great kids movie! they still talk about it. The twins were very good in this movie. the kids loved the trucks. the also loved the chicken bone song and can still sing it.
