Just for Kids
9 November 2004 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

In some ways this movie reminds me of some of the creations a child could make were he (she) given a camcorder. The acting was completely second-rate, but tolerable. The scenery was very simplistic, yet still believable. Even though the storyline was far-fetched, the movie was really cute and worth a peak.

I don't think adults would enjoy this movie very much. It's really just a nice little story for kids. It teaches a lesson and has fun with it. This is the kind of movie that you might see in a grade school religion class.

One word to describe this movie would be mediocre. But of course, mediocre (movies) do exceptional things all the time.
