Boys will be boys
29 November 2006 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

Our family has loved this movie for ages. We taped it off of the Disney Channel about 20 years ago, and even though our kids have grown and left the house, we still quote from the movie, and watch it together from time to time. The story includes everything that a young boy could want in a movie: a cool tree fort, a haunted mansion, buried treasure, a mean next door neighbor, and a pretty girl. I wish Disney would put this one out on DVD, I'd buy several copies, one for each of the kids, and one for the Mrs. and me.

The story is basically about two brothers who are in a "club" together, but the younger brother (played by Billy Mumy) has to do all of the work since his older brother is president. When a new family moves to town, Mumy is hopeful that there are a lot of boys in the family so they can join the club and help with the workload...after all, someone's got to haul dirt clods up into the tree fort. But the new family only has one child, a son, who is the same age as the older brother. The fun starts when they both start to compete against each other for the love of Willadean.
