Trivia

Alan Thicke provided the voice of "Newman". Perhaps a nod to his previous role in the film "Not Quite Human" which released 4 years prior. See more »

Scared me as a child.
25 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful heartfelt movie. All the children as well as Alan Thick gave super performances. Definitely something you could watch with the whole family. If you liked the Not Quite Human series I'd recommend this.
