Good family fun
1 May 1999 | by (Brisbane,Australia) – See all my reviews

I really did not want to see this movie. But my kids wanted to watch so I sat with them. I'm glad I stayed. The affects and story line were interesting and my children liked it. Good enough for me. Use your kids to rent this one for yourself, or borrow some for the experience.
