MOSTLY Cute, But.........
19 November 2000 | by KrindaSee all my reviews

Okay, whenever the children are on screen, the watching children are totally absorbed. But when it's adults mostly, well, the children start to drift, doze off, play with laid out toys, etc. This movie needed lots more of the children ONLY, and the scenes with the adults had to be much, much shorter. But the kids were very good, and I particularly enjoyed the goodbye scene between Dennis (Victor DiMattia) and Joey (Jarrett Lennon) -- it was REAL!!!
