Storyline

A young girl named Bridget Severson lives with her parents, brother, and grandmother. Her aunt Ruth comes by regularly too. Everyone but her grandmother, is too busy for hugging or showing affection. She soon finds out that they've talked her grandmother into going to a nursing home. Bridget, being so upset by this, follows a little creature named Huggins through her closet mirror to HuggaLand in search of a way to make her grandmother young again. In HuggaLand, she learns that eating the fruit of the young berry tree can give instant youth. Unfortunately, the only young berry tree grows in the Country/Land of Shrugs. She'll have to cross the sea of broken glass, pass the hairy behemoth, and venture into the evil Queen Admira's castle. Will Bridget succeed? Written by grrlpunk

I am not alone after all
21 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Oh my gosh I think we should form a support group there are so many of us who saw this and forgot the name of it. I used to rent it all the time when I was little. I am so glad I am not the only one who remembers it!!!!!!!!!! I want to get a copy of and I am trying but since it is so hard to get it is very expensive. I think my favorite part was towards the end when they had the fruit and some of it fell. Then when the meet the bookworm I thought he was so cool. I hope I can get a copy of it because I would really enjoy seeing it again. I put a question out on yahoo to help me find the title of it and most of the people said it was labyrinth or the dark crystal but I own both so I knew it wasn't either of those. Then one day I drove by a road sign that said huggins and it made me think of the title hug then I came home checked my email and there was the answer the hugga bunch movie from someone.
