It's a good thing that Max Schmeling never saw this; he might have chosen not to pay for Joe Louis's funeral!, 11 July 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

Good, wholesome little boy goes with parents to fair, gets lost, and has all sorts of adventures. Yeah, we've seen this far too many times. "Johnny at the Fair" should be titled "Johnny at the Un-fair". And to think that Joe Louis got himself mixed up in this swill. No doubt the people of Canada are embarrassed that their country got portrayed like this (we can probably all agree that Michael Moore and the "South Park" guys have done a much better job looking at our northern neighbor). Fortunately, all is not lost: "MST3K" tore this movie apart. In their version, Johnny's negligent parents decide to abandon him.

In conclusion, the movie by itself is 0/10, but the "MST3K" version is 10/10.
