Eleven-year-old Cooper Callaghan knows how to have fun, especially while living in what he calls "the greatest neighborhood in the world." Summer days are filled with elaborate games, adventures and the occasional practical joke on his temperamental older sister, Penny. But when Castle Hills' favorite grandpa, Mr. Wilson, loses something dear to him and his wife, Cooper and his friends face a mission that may be impossible to complete. With only a handful of hours before Mrs. Wilson arrives home for the big July 4th celebration, Cooper must search every corner of the community, out-smart his sister and overcome his own pride to save the day.

This is a great family movie. My grandkids have watched it several times and enjoyed it every time. And I enjoy the soundtrack. It's a fun movie with a positive message about sticking together to get something done. It also sends a good message about people of different generations working together. It is a great idea to use the community as a backdrop and all of the people who live there as extras, cast and crew. If you live locally, it's also fun to drive around the community, or "movie set," and see all of the places it was filmed. It's great entertainment for the whole family and I recommend it!
