Storyline

Otis Garner was in his fifties when he walked out on his wife and kids. During a bittersweet reunion with his son Ted thirty years later, Otis hears a story about one special summer when Ted struggled with his own breaking point. An ambitious flashback shows the overworked Ted pressured to make time for his own young son Mike and his buddy Andy who want to spend the summer making some movies. Finally realizing the importance of getting involved, Ted gives in and helps the kids create a very special film based on a classic Native American legend, The Sleeping Bear. Ted gets help from some unusual characters including a colorful tugboat captain, a man who has bears as pets, a Native American storyteller, and many others. Together they all help the boys with their film, and along the way, demonstrate the true meaning of friendship. Written by Richard Brauer

Why????

Caught this on TV. It is the worst movie I have ever seen. It seems like the people involved with this movie were trying to make it a "Wonder Years" sort of thing but fell completely flat. The movie is littered with over acting and terrible script banter... to the point that I really thought it was a joke (something like This is Spinal Tap). The only part of the whole movie that can be considered watchable was the kids actual movie that they made with the Native American man telling his story. Even Ernest Borgnine didn't use 1 iota of acting skill in this movie. The only reason I watched the movie to the end was because I really thought at some point the joke would be revealed...it turns out it was revealed, and the joke was on me. PLEASE Don't waste your time....
