Storyline

Mr. Conductor's supply of magic gold dust, which allows him to travel between Shining Time and Thomas's island, is critically low. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to get more. Meanwhile, Thomas is fending off attacks by the nasty diesel engines. Getting more gold dust will require help from Mr. C's slacker cousin, his new friend Lilly, and her morose grandfather, plus the secret engine he's hidden all these years and couldn't get running.

Goofs

When Diesel-10 swings Mr. Conductor out over the river, the viaduct's keystone shakes loose and falls, then a few seconds later, two more large stones and a smaller one come loose and start to fall, also. But when Mr. Conductor then leans out over Pinchy's side and looks down at the river, the shot of his viewpoint shows all three large stones falling together in a tight group, as if they'd come loose all at once and gotten dropped together.

For The Kid In All Of US
7 August 2000 | by (Grand Rapids, Michigan) – See all my reviews

My wife and I took our 3 year old to see this film and we all enjoyed it. In the age of lots of shoot 'em up and Pokemon "crap" Thomas was refreshing and light. For all those who have slammed this film as being the worst of 2000 I can only imagine that they have no sense of wonder and either don't have kids or don't read to their kids. Take your little ones, leave your synicism at the door and be a kid again. Its o.k. to enjoy a kids film!! :)
