Magnificent!
22 March 2002 | by (Lake Mills, Iowa) – See all my reviews



When I was younger, the stories of the Borrowers always fascinated me, now that there is a new movie with John Goodman, who puts on a good act, the spark has returned. This particular Borrowers movie is very interesting. In "The Return Of The Borrowers", Pod, Himily, and their daughter Arrietty, decide to move. Throughout the movie they encounter humans and animals alike. This would have to be my favorite of the Borrower movies because I like the idea of the Borrowers out in the world, encountering dangers and beauties alike. I would have to give this show a 10/10! You must watch it.
