Storyline

Welcome to the world of stamps with Tommy Tricker and friends as they learn the magic of travelling through time and space for the mere price of the postage. Though of course, nothing is as easy as it seems as they soon learn when they try to rescue Charles Merriweather, a stamp traveller frozen in time since his last attempt at stamp- travelling, 65 years ago. But Charles turns out to be a girl, his sister Molly! And she is rapidly turning into an old woman. To find a cure, Tommy takes off in a race against the time that leads him and Molly to the exotic and magical South Pacific islands. Written by L.H. Wong <as9401k56@ntuvax.ntu.ac.sg>

Those Traveling Stamps Are Back
2 October 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Return Of Tommy Tricker is a sequel film to another children's fantasy with the same character title. The thought behind both these films is to interest Canadian kids in the wonderful world of stamp collecting. With such things as video games and the internet I wonder if stamp collecting holds the same fascination as it did for children years ago.

If you saw the first film you learned that there are certain postal stamps that if you possess them and know the magic words, you can have your self mailed anywhere in the world. Beats the airlines any day what with their prices now.

Anyway Tommy and his friends find one of those stamps on an undelivered letter with a young kid on it. In a collection that is now over half a century old, the kid is still young on the stamp. What will happen if the letter is ever delivered who knows.

The kids would like to rescue their peer on the postage stamp, but Tommy has plans to make money out of it. The authors of both films saw Tommy as a combination of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn in the modern day.

For myself I found it almost ghoulish Tommy's self absorption in seeking to profit from a kid's misery. The kid on the stamp reminded me of that classic Star Trek TNG episode where the current Enterprise crew finds Scotty trapped in an abandoned ship's transport. Imagine where poor James Doohan would be if Jean-Luc Picard or any of his crew behaved in a similar fashion.

This one like its predecessor is strictly for kids.
