This is one fantastic piece of acting
16 February 2004 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Although the puppet in this movie leaves much to be desired, the acting by the character playing Chris, the better looking of the two boys, is absolutely outstanding. He commands a presence on screen that is rivaled only by his devilish good looks. All in all, he saves this film and puts it on my top ten list.
