this is the best movie i have ever seen...
25 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

So back home in Atlanta, a select group of friends and myself have secretly been huge fans of the movie Grandpa's Magical Toys ( I usually refer to it as Grandpa's Magical Toy Chest..I don't know why...). We memorize the songs, we recreate the dances, we practice the hand claps. And although we are all truly terrified of the scene where the beaver gets up close to the screen and shouts "HAMBONE!" we watch it over and over again. So when I arrived at Georgetown University and met my roommate it wasn't exactly the kind of favorite movie you would bring up the first day of conversation. But as the weeks passed and we became closer, I casually referenced my favorite movie of all time. To my utter joy and surprise, my roommate was also a HUGE fan. And now we can share in the glory of the best musical sing-a-long children's movie ever created. It brings laughter, tears...I just can't even describe how wonderful this film is. I truly believe that it will forever live on in movie history in all its cinematic glory.
