Good obscure TV movie
6 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I really like this movie and thought it deserves someone saying something about it. I give it a 10 because it delivers what its supposed to: a good time. Basically, it is about teaching a greedy rich man a lesson. He is a mortgage loaner, and he is in the business of talking people into taking loans they can never pay back and then he for-closes on their houses like a predator. One boy, facing for-closure of his home, decides to steal a car to pay for the money owed. He happens to steal the car of one of the most popular movie directors in Hollywood (he was obviously supposed to look like Steven Spielberg). When the director finds out about the for-closures, he and his team of special effects experts set out to teach the greedy man a lesson using fake aliens and Hollywood special effects! This is a lighthearted movie and is fun to watch. The whole family could enjoy it, but I doubt anyone could ever find it even if they try. I remember this coming on ABC about 1991 and I taped it then, and still watch the tape I made today. I would definitely recommend it, and everyone who has ever watched it with me has enjoyed its humor, special effects, and its moral. If you are able to see this film, you are lucky and I hope you like it!
