Best childrens Film EVER, I think so!
22 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This film is an terrific kids movie. It's light, but lots of fun. My kids make me play all the time. And as an adult, I have no problem sitting through it repeatedly. In fact, I found it to be very heartwarming. It's worth it just to see Eric Estrada playing the part of Joe, (Engine Joe) in the original. If it had gone to theaters, I do believe that it might have become a kids favorite for generations. As for the setting, it does say, "Modern Adventures" in the title. The film wasn't trying to debate or relive the days of racism, and prejudice as the original did. It's meant to be cute, and TRULY for kids, which the original wasn't actually designed for, even tho it dealt with young adults. The original was never meant to be a GOONIES type movie. I also noticed the earlier comment about bad acting? It's exactly the opposite. Kids movies rarely have acting of this high caliber. The movie revives some familiar, old-time actors that are well noted for their comedic skills. And the films "kid leads," (since this films original release a few years back) have become fairly familiar faces in Hollywood. Even "notable" careers in fact. I would encourage you to view it for yourself tho, and you decide.
