A good romp
14 November 1999 | by agulledgSee all my reviews

I just rented it again. I just ignore the plot porcupines and enjoy the adolescent romp. Perfect family viewing; some action and suspense, no violence, and just one kiss. For those of us that will be forever planet bound, it is sometimes nice to dream.
