Did you all see the same movie I saw?
30 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm reading these comments and scratching my head. Words like "well made", "excellent", "skillfully" are being applied to a movie that was filmed in 2001 but took three years to find someone to distribute the thing. Yes, it is simple G rated fair, good for family viewing but it doesn't mean it has to stink up the theater. "Babe", for example, is one of the greatest G-rated movies made (I think it's G-rated). That is how family movies should be made. Or look at any of the older Disney G-rated live action movies. None of those have the plot holes and acting pitfalls that Grand Champion contains.

Kids ages six and under will like this movie but after that most kids will look at you and say "what the???"
