Good family show
4 February 2000 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Two children time travel from the year 1815 to a hundred years in the future. Their purpose is to foil a crime committed by a greedy relative and his in-laws. This should be a good picture for kids to watch, I think they would find it exciting. I liked the little spin the writers put in at the film's ending.
