Horrible name for a wonderful movie....
16 April 1999 | by Delilah-TinaSee all my reviews

Who named this movie? And why did they do it? Terrible name, and the scene it's based on could have easily been edited out. Jonathan Gries is WONDERFUL as Max .. he really shines in this role, and I wish he could have had MANY others like it. I'll have to watch it about ten more times before I can give a truly informed opinion of it, though ;-)
