Two great character actors ......Rip Torn.....Roberts Blossom.....
20 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rip Torn and Roberts Blossom shine in "Balloon Farm", a smart fantasy film from "Disney". Intriguing enough for adults and children alike, this colorful movie deals with overcoming hardship by believing in the impossible. Several twists keep the outcome in doubt, and maintain interest. The supporting acting varies from accomplished Richard Riehle, as the store owner, to the overacting Neal McDonough, as the sheriff. Nobody will care, because it is such a feel good film, it holds together no matter what the faults. For something different than the usual animation, I suggest giving "Balloon Farm" a try. Recommended family viewing. - MERK
