This movie is only good because of Mike Angarano
22 December 2000 | by Zane-05See all my reviews

Pretty standard Disney Channel material---I've seen better, I've seen worse. It's about a boy (Michael Angarano) who buys his dad's toy company with the help of the internet. The plot has been done 100 times before---overworked dad loves his kids but doesn't spend enough time with them. I honestly think Michael Angarano does far better in the USA show, "COVER ME". In this movie it seems as if he is just going through the motions.
