Once again this film is a great example how adults take kids for complete idiots. This is the story of a 12-year old who has lost his dog and goes to find the robbers who killed Lucky by accident. It would have been more convincing if he had been 8 to 10.. not 12. 12 is when you start Junior High School and you are supposed to be just a little bit more mature than this. But if we continue to infantilise our youths, of course it makes a society of idiots like the one we are living in now!
Also, the casting was awful, Russ Tamblyn (who I loved in Twin Peaks) can't maintain the Italian accent for more than two consecutive words. Every character is so exaggerated, even a toddler will find it too much. Aunt Violet was based so much on Cruella Deville (101 Dalmatians) that it's almost plagiarized!
This really feels like a movie some man has decided to shoot using his friends and family as actors. But it's not even as bad as to be considered funny.
The plot itself is thin. We've seen I don't know how many times films about kids playing detectives.. why try making yet another one and as badly as this one?
Do us all a favour and don't show this to your kids, it's an insult to their intelligence.
