Great family movie
13 January 2001 | by Reaper-29See all my reviews

This was my favorite movie when I was 11. I watched it everyday, until my older sister used it to record one of her soap operas. I'm 18 now and happened to be looking through a discount bin at an old town video store. Guess what I found? I have to admit, it was a little on the stupid side. It didn't have a great plot, and the action was unrealistic, but aside from all that, it was still funny. One week later, while watching my 8 year old cousin, I popped in Remote, and you know what, he loved that movie just as much as I did when I was young. Isn't that what watching videos is supposed to be about? I look forward to watching it with my children someday.
