Original "The Borrowers", 19 May 2000
Author: mage-13 from Canada

This movie is the most WONDERFUL kid's movie I've seen in AGES!!! I had the good fortune to stumble across "The Return of the Borrowers" at the library, and after seeing it, immediately went back for the first copy. This movie, granted is slow at times, and may lose young, fidgety children's interest after a while, but it is a treat for the adults and teens!!! An overall wonderful movie that I wish was available to buy.
