I simply like this film
28 October 1998 | by najaSee all my reviews

I saw this movie long ago (about 16 years), and I am not sure if this is the film I remember, but I think it is. I like this movie, because the boy and his friends had a lot of ideas to stop their boss from transporting the elephant away. The best, I think, was when the girl jumped on the board and so catapulted the circus director's son in a cage full of straw and his father had to help him out.
