Did You Know?

Trivia

John Landis was asked by PolyGram to direct this film. They wanted Landis to do another movie for them, having done An American Werewolf In London (1981) for them 17 years earlier. But Landis turned it down because he was working on Blues Brothers 2000 (1998) at the same time and Landis even said that he had no interest into directing a children's film, especially with what happened with him on the making of Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983).

Inappropriate for everybody
12 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Unlike the TV show, which is quite good for kids 2-4, this film is inappropriate for just about anybody. Very young children will be lost in the plot. And I don't really want to subject my child to slapstick humor (e.g. the sullen boy accidentally stepping on a cow pie).
