A film that is sure to appeal to the nostalgia buff.
8 June 2003 | by (Lexington, KY) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite Disney movies. Very well written, good acting, and great chemistry between the actors in this "coming of age" film that revolves around the adventures of three young boys and a young girl in small town America in the early 1960s. The plot revolves around the rivalry between the two older boys, both in their early teens, for a girl their age who lives in the neighborhood; one of the boys, Harley Mason, who is played by Roger Mobley of "Fury" fame, has just moved to town from the big city - Detroit. In order to be initiated into a "club" whose membership consists of two brothers - played remarkably well by Michael McGreevey and Billy Mumy

  • Harley is asked to perform two rather unpleasant tasks. One of them is


stealing a prize watermelon from a local curmudgeon, and the other is spending time alone in a house that is said to be haunted. All along the way, the film has the look and feel of a Mark Twain novel, and therein lies much of its charm.
