Movie Mason: When we arrive in this world, magic is all around us. You simply have to see a baby discover a butterfly or a toddler splash in the bath for the first time. Yet, as the years pass, simple pleasures aren't quite so simple to find. Myths and legends fall away. Santa's secrets are revealed. Card tricks lose their fascination. True wonder is hard to come by.

Not too bad, but still kinda bad
29 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie was OK actually. The premise is actually very stupid I thought, but they throw in little bits of humor that make the movie bearable. Or maybe it's just me and my sense of humor (which is kind of odd I must admit), but I found some parts hysterical. Like when Pete is eating the cereal and his mom says to him, "Slow down, no one's gonna steal your wooly mammoth meat." Haha. Anyway, if your sense of humor is kind of out-of-whack like mine, you'd probably like some parts of this movie. If not, well, you'd probably hate it.
