A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
While on location in a spooky Romanian villa with his Hollywood big-shot mom and her dorky boyfriend, twelve-year-old Kevin befriends a Renaissance-era girl ghost who helps him cause unrest on the set.
A young boy is found wandering without any memory of who he is. A family takes him in and begin to look for clues to help him find his way home. In the meantime, they notice that the boy seems to have certain special abilities, not usually found in kids his age, or even fully-grown adults.Written by

Daryl's number on the Mohawks Little League baseball team is 7, and Turtle's is 3. See more »
When Joyce teaches Daryl how to play the piano, Daryl demonstrates his grasp of the piece's rhythm (at around 6 mins) by saying, "Whole note, two half notes, and four quarters to a measure," a perfect description of 4/4 time. However, they play a piece in 6/8 time. See more »
I like this movie. It is exactly the type of movie that often makes me so irritated with the critics. I know that it is not a great movie and it doesn't pretend to be. But it is just the type of movie I enjoy watching after a difficult day at work. DARYL and his family and his neighbors are nice decent people. The villains are properly villainous. They humor is light and fun. (I especially like the part where DARYL's mom is telling her friend about all the things DARYL does, like make his bed and iron his cloths.) The ending is wonderful and hilarious.
If you haven't seen it please do. It is fun and enjoyable and it is an excellent family movie.
