Disney Lovers Should Demand Movies Like This Be Available, 6 February 2007
Author: cimmanonstix from United States

I grew up with this movie and it brings back wonderful childhood memories every time I see it. I was really able to relate to this movie as an adventure-seeking kid myself, I even had my own "club" that mainly included my sister and I.

It doesn't seem to make sense that a room full of writers would go through all the trouble of thinking up this intriguing storyline, the actors work hard to entertain, then the movie-business promote it and make everyone fall in love with it, and now there's a good group of people who want the movie at home and it's impossible to get your hands on it. It seems unfair, especially when there are so many lousy movies readily available.

Disney should at least let you special order these online.
