Storyline

Late one night, Billy and Kade Ruckman see their neighbor, Michael Chambers, murder a woman, but Chambers has a story all set to convince their mother Vicky, that it was just a rehearsal scene from an opera. The only ones who can help them find the body in Chambers' house before he moves and gets rid of all evidence, are their friends, Jimmy, Eddie, and J.J., who are determined to find the body before Chambers finds them.

I liked it
4 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess it did have a couple violent parts, but for older kids, 12 or so it is probably okay. I watched it as an adult and liked it. Except for the inevitable murder (it is a murder mystery, after all), the other violent part was self defence. I thought it was suspenseful, which could scare younger children. (I remember being scared by the Wizard of Oz and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.) It didn't hurt that it was filmed in Utah, where I'm from. The reason I only rated it a seven out of ten was that it was an independent film, maybe a little on the amateur side, and it is a kids' show, but it was pretty good. I'm gonna see if I can find it for sale someplace, maybe amazon or someplace.
