Am I the only one?
17 February 2004 | by Mystic1111See all my reviews

Am I the only person that has seen this movie? I saw this film as a child. It came on tv a lot (USA or something like that) and I loved it. It intrigued me. Something about scavenger hunts, with different teams, through the city at night. Anyways, as I grew older I never heard of this movie again. I mean for at least 10 to 12 years. Nothing. But I still remembered the song from the movie and it would sometimes pop in my head. I thought myself to be crazy and so did everyone else I had asked about it. I had convinced myself that I must have made it up when I was younger, but then I found the movie at a store one day and bought it. Now I think it to be quite humorous the things we get attached to as a child and think are so funny. It is still entertaining to me though. Oh well, Anyone else?

I know I seem it, but No, I am not crazy. My mind is wide awake and I can't sleep!
