Perfect family movie
29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was 4yrs old and I fell in love with it! Even now almost 10yrs later I still enjoy watching this. It's a perfect family movie filled with everything from comedy, romance, horror-(kids), and plenty of action! We still have this movie on tape and I love to watch it with my brother and sister. They enjoy this as much as I do. Adventures in Dinosaur City is my #1 choice for a family movie. If you haven't seen this movie you should defiantly watch it. It is and always will be one of my favorite movies. The characters are awesome and the plot is different from any I've ever seen. This movie is unique and one that I defiantly give 2 thumbs up!
