Harmless Fun
5 December 2001 | by (Malltown) – See all my reviews

Yup, its a total remake of the Music Man sans the Music with land speculation taking the place of musical instruments. I dont think the creators would ever deny that. But there's nothing sinister in that is there? The movie is very light, enjoyable and refreshingly wholesome. It is well acted, directed and filmed. Good triumphs over evil, the guy gets the girl and everyone lives happily ever after. If you want to criticize the overused theme, ok, but in this case you cant knock the execution. Sometimes, its nice to just sit and watch a well made movie without being shocked distrubed or provoked. Give this one a try.
