Storyline

Four kids and a dog embark on the adventure of a lifetime -- the search for the end of the Rainbow. With the aid of computers and an irrepressible belief, they achieve the impossible, finding and riding the multicolored arc. But the gold they take starts a more dangerous adventure, because gold gives the Rainbow energy and the Rainbow gives the world its colors...and if earth loses the color green, no oxygen can be produced. As the world turns black and white, the children battle time and disbelief to restore the Rainbow's power...and save the world. Written by Anonymous

So much promise turns to lead
28 September 2003 | by (Todmorden, England) – See all my reviews

Bob Hoskins does the most convincing American accent I've ever heard a British actor do, but directing doesn't seem to come as naturally as dialect. This movie features unattractive leading children, unbelievable school situations, stereotypical 'media' types, and completely fails to persuade even the most credulous that the magic is *there*. Special effects are variable, but generally poor. Unconvincing acting ruins what might have been rather good dialogue. It's a shame. I really, really wanted to like this movie, but there was no there there.
