When Dr. Hugo Robbin's laboratory is blown up, his nurse Ann Loring is charged with murdering the doctor. During her trial, a group of children continually disrupts the courtroom, claiming to have important evidence. The children are finally allowed to testify, but as a result of their testimony, their friend Dan, who runs a repair shop, is now charged with the crime instead of the nurse. The children are now determined to prove Dan's innocence, and they go to the abandoned laboratory to look for evidence, leading to a series of hazardous adventures.Written by
The enigmatic Doc Robbin is murdered when one night his laboratory explodes. The Fix-It Man gets unfairly blamed, so his friends, a gang of little kids, set out to prove his innocence.
This tiresome movie is like a live action version of a Scooby Doo cartoon without any of the good bits. It recalls the mystery films of the 1930's where a group of people navigate around an old dark house trying to solve some murder-mystery. Like those films too, this house is replete with secret passageways and a man in a gorilla suit. What kind of sets this one apart I suppose is the fact that it was shot in colour. There really isn't anything else interesting about it. Although I suppose in fairness it is a kids movie, so it isn't really meant for the likes of me.
