One of the best children's film I've seen!
29 April 2001 | by (Ft Walton Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews



This movie will warm your heart and tickle your funny bone all at the same time! Ben Kingsley is superb in his character as the Great Zamboni. Younger children and preteen will have the most fun with this and they will be heading to the music store to buy the soundtrack also! The special effects will set you back 2 feet! Kudos to Bill Sachs to a job WELL DONE! Can't wait till it hits the BIG screen so we can see it again and again!
