A herpetologist's dream!
10 December 2001 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

I happened upon this movie this past weekend on Showtime and I was captivated. This movie had a very cute story, and some really funny parts to it. I especially died laughing when the big Bullfrog who was Arlo's friend in the poison pond broke into song! HA!

All in all, good fun for everyone.

My one question is this...... why was Robin Tunney not credited in her pivotal role as the nerd girl, fighting to save the poison pond, who eventually kisses the frog and turns Arlo back into a human? If Denise Richards keeps "Tammy and the T-Rex" on her resume, I don't see why Robin Tunney can't keep this on hers.
