Quotes

Movie Mason: When we arrive in this world, magic is all around us. You simply have to see a baby discover a butterfly or a toddler splash in the bath for the first time. Yet, as the years pass, simple pleasures aren't quite so simple to find. Myths and legends fall away. Santa's secrets are revealed. Card tricks lose their fascination. True wonder is hard to come by.

AMAZING!
17 March 2002 | by DesWarinSee all my reviews

This is the funniest movie that I have ever seen! The acting is above top notch. Who needs Oscar winners, when you have David Johnston, and Mickey Rooney. How this movie disappeared off of the face of the earth, I have no idea. Good thing I filled twelve six-hour tapes with this movie, in case eleven are destroyed or something. I don't sleep! I just watch this movie. How can I bathe, eat, or re-enter society when I can watch this 24/7. I'm watching it right now. Granted, my skin is gray from lack of sunlight; and my leg muscles have atrophied, but I can't get enough of PoTM, as us Hollywood-savvy insiders call it. How can you not like this movie? "City Morgue" Priceless "What, do you want a medal?" Timeless I give this movie (Infinity^Infinity) Stars!
