Good old fashioned PG family entertainment
25 August 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Just a Dream" is a slow moving, soft spoken sentimental tale from Showtime about one boy's special summer and the lessons he learns. The obvious scripting, theatrical flavor, and Pollyanna attitude of the flick is easily overlooked in view of its higher purpose as it spins its wistful story delivering positive messages about life. Good old fashioned back-to-basics family entertainment which should be about PG rated. (B-)
