When Calvin's special sneakers are first delivered he immediately puts on of them on and looks at the initials on the inside tongue of the shoe. The bully then walks over to Calvin sitting on the ground and grabs the shoes, which are no longer on Calvin and are now tied together. See more »
I watched this movie and thought it was great. I have two younger sisters, and nowadays I cannot find a good movie that I enjoy, and that is appropriate for my 10 year old sister. This was a very good movie, very clean and enjoyable. Other than the fact that Bow climbs an electric wire in the rain, and that the shoes were magic, the storyline was just enough realistic so that kids can see that life isn't perfect for everyone. Other people have problems too. And there were a surprising twist of events. All in all, I think this was a great show. I really appreciate finding a movie that I don't have to worry about my sisters, and that my parents feel okay with us watching. Thank you!
