Awesome Kids Movie
30 December 1999 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

I am the father of a six year old boy and he loves this film. I even like watching it when my son is not with me. I recommend that every parent buy this movie. It will likely be more attractive to boys but I challenge you as a parent to rent it and watch it. It could easily be qualified to be a Disney film (Obviously Disney had nothing to do with it, just that it is a great wholesome movie).
