Very very cute
22 January 2001 | by pursenutSee all my reviews

This movie is indeed about a Rip Van Winkle type situation, but there are various plot aspects like who put him to sleep, how he deals with his family when he returns from the sleep, how he helps the town. It was especially nice to be reminded that yes, just one person CAN make a difference, and our small-town USA is worth saving. It reminds us that life is magic, it isn't about your money or your status, and it does so in a lovely Disney-reminiscent rated G fashion. Watch this one with your kids!
