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

Did You Know?


Was never given a release in the United States aside from it's USA premiere as an official entry in the Newport Beach International Film Festival, April 3-13, 1997. Distribution of the film in the U.S market was hampered due to the fact that the Canadian territory had been sold prior to filming. The major studios decided, in spite of their keen interest in the film and it's A-List cast including Hoskins and Dan Aykroyd, that it was too much of a financial risk to invest in prints and advertising, in the absence of total North American Territory rights and their projected box office revenues.

Frank Bailey: Now, tell me what you wanna tell me, come on.
Mike Bailey: You see, I seen a rainbow. I mean not just any rainbow. I saw it land, like right in front of me. See, you don't believe me either, do you?
Frank Bailey: What do you mean I don't believe you? Of course I believe you. Listen, Mikey, i'm talking about you. If everybody doesn't believe you, or if everybody doesn't like you, either blind, or they got bad tasted people, we all dreamed about the end of the rainbow. And you're the only guy in the world who found it!

AWESOME!!!, up there with goonies and flight of navigator
10 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wow!!! So happy I have finally got to see this. Remember seeing it in the video shop as a kid and the cover looked magical. Picked it up for 20p from a charity shop today. IT IS SO COOL.

Basically these kids hang round a train yard playing in the trains and exploring the city. One day one of them sees a rainbow land in front of him and its the most magical thing ever. Now all the kids want to find the rainbow again....maybe it will take them somewhere....maybe it will change everything.....

Hope you enjoy it. Kids from age of 7 to 10 should absolutely love this.

I'm 29 and I love it so adults should like it a lot too.
