Amazing Movie
13 April 2009 | by orgrunebaumSee all my reviews

I first watched this movie when i was in grade 6 while I was in Israel and I never stopped loving it. Over the years I have been looking for this movie in the US and Canada and couldn't find it. I was really disappointed but a couple of month ago when I was in Israel again I went into the BlockBuster (movie rental store) there, and there I saw Emil and the Detectives for purchasing and for a very cheap price too. So I quickly grabbed the opportunity and bought it. When I got home I was positive it was going to be German with subs but when i played the movie it was in English dubbed. I was amazed and I recommend if anyone wants to buy the movie to contact BlockBuster there and order it.

I would rate this movie 10/10 just because it still makes me smile whenever I watch it.
