Storyline

An eccentric toymaker's last wish is that his brother takes over the running of the business. The brother is a military General, and is out of touch with toymaking, and out of touch with reality too. The business should really have been given to Leslie, who was much more like his toymaking father. When the General starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action. Written by Rob Hartill

Goofs

After the little spy robot gets run over, Patrick Zevo is in the surveillance truck telling the other two guys about tomorrow's meeting with the military leaders. If you watch the red numbers over his right shoulder you'll see them counting upwards until they hit 59:20, then the camera goes to one of the other guys, then back to Patrick Zevo, you see the numbers back down to 59:14 and continue counting up.

A Movie for Those Of Us Who Refuse To Grow Up
9 July 2000 | by coolelleSee all my reviews

This movie rivals Time Bandits for the best movie for adults who refuse to grow up. It has all the subtle, intelligent jokes the adult in you could want, AND all of the slapstick and visual humor the child in you needs. The entire move is set in a huge field of very green grass. The colors are primary and silly. The subtext is incredibly fascinating. And the music! The music involves some of the best rock and pop artists of the time! Hooray for Toys!
