Not Tom Sawyer, But Still Fun
22 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Please forget the fact that this is supposed to be an updated Tom Sawyer, because it doesn't work as such. But it is a very fun movie for kids, and has some greatly clever moments. The characters and story seem simple, but that's just fine, they don't need to be any deeper. One of those movies that is helped by the inclusion of several classic TV stars (depending on who you are, that could be a good thing), including Laraine Newman as Tom's aunt, David L. Lander as the town's mayor, and Erik Estrada as the requisite bad guy. Give it a watch, but don't expect anything more than a neat little time waster.
