A touch on the cheesy side, but good for a rainy day.
4 February 2003 | by (Tasmania, Australia) – See all my reviews

My sister used to have this obsession with Jonathan Jackson, so when she found out this movie was on, she taped it. I was bored one day, so I put it on and watched it, and it's not the greatest movie, but it's not the worst either.

Jonathan Jackson plays Rudy. a very rich child and head of a business that he inherited from his father after he died. When Rudy is kidnapped, a friend of his father's, Professor Wooley finds a boy named Oliver (Rudy's doppelganger) to run the buisness for him and lead Rudy's life.

Watch it if it comes on TV one day, but don't waste your time looking for it. 6/10
