Storyline

Jeffrey "Maniac" Magee was orphaned as a baby, but nothing gets him down. He comes to a small town which, although divided by racism, is populated by colorful/comical characters. As he searches for his place in the world, Maniac changes the people around him, espcially the other children. With his amazing athletic abilities and good, almost unbelievable deeds, his name becomes legend and with this new status he will try to unite the town. Written by Max Vaughn

Did the makers of this movie even read the book?
2 March 2003 | by (knoxville, tn) – See all my reviews

This has got to be the worst book to movie interpretation I have ever seen. I need to wash my tv. And my eyes. Anyone who thinks this is a good movie has never read the book. Booooooo Nickelodeon, in the words of Ebert; I hate hate hated this movie. 1 out of 10
