[after Omri picks him up to stop him from shooting Little Bear]
I'm tired of getting hauled around all the time! I might'a known you'd take the side of that stinkin' savage!

The Indian in the Cupboard is a delightful movie. The sweet and adorable Omri (played by Hal Scardino) is great to go along with on this fascinating adventure. The character Omri is a perfect portrayal of a sensitive and thoughtful 9 year old boy. This movie is most enjoyable in that aspect, above and beyond the story of the strange abilities of the cupboard.
