Storyline

Eccentric toymaker Kenneth Zevo (Donald O'Connor) last wish is that his brother, Leland (Sir Michael Gambon), takes over the running of the business. Leland is out of touch with toymaking and reality too. The business should really have been given to his nephew, Leslie (Robin Williams), who was much more like Kenneth. When Leland starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action. Written by Rob Hartill

how these pieces of flotsam get made?
8 September 1999 | by JasodomySee all my reviews

I saw this movie, and after I did, I wished I were dead. I can't believe studios actually pay people to do the kind of performances Williams does. I'm not certain actual running time on this film was, but it felt like an eternity. I'm sure about 10 people saw this one.
