This family comedy is about, Zack, an 8-year old American boy who is separated from his 18-year old sister, as they arrive in Paris for a family vacation. Seth, and friends track Zack down. Written by
Although I monitor what my kids watch, I don't normally enjoy the same TV programming they do. This was a delightful exception. On a family vacation, the boy gets lost in Paris (of course) and that sets the wheels in motion for a somewhat predictable, but nevertheless entertaining story. Overlook, as always, some plausibility issues. What sets this movie apart from the usual (silly) TV movies for kids was the fabulous setting in Paris and great music!! Then add to that an appearance by my favorite, Jon Cryer and a cute performance by child actor Christopher Plumley, who pretty much carries the show. It is also educational. I would not be surprised to see this film turn up in French classrooms across the country. This is certainly worth watching with your kids the next time it is on. It is at least as good, if not better than, other kids' programming.
