i can't believe anyone even remember's this movie.
11 September 2004 | by freubSee all my reviews

it was such a long time ago. i love 80's movies. if anyone knows of any more 80's TV movies that are good let me know. I read that some people hated the movie. man, that's crazy. when i was a kid i loved it. my brother and i taped and watched it over and over. i lost the tape, but i'd like to get a copy somehow, because it reminds me of being a kid. i wish they made more TV movies like that today. it's no blockbuster, but just good fun TV. another good movie is monster squad. if anyone remembers that one. or little spies. that's an old one. i bet no-one remembers that one. there's one more about a bunch of kids with bikes, and had a club, and had something to do with the army, but i don't remember the name of it.
