A boy and his ferret seek love, acceptance, and a forever home
30 November 2013 | by mbstraykatzSee all my reviews

Director Alison Parker has done it again. The Magic Ferret is a delightfully entertaining and heart-warming tale about an orphan named Sam (played by Jacob Tremblay), and his ferret Booger (played by Falcor the Ferret). Watching the film, you can sense the bond between human and ferret. Falcor is his usual hammy but lovable self, and Jacob is so adorable you can't help but feel for his situation. The other actors round out the ensemble nicely. This is a definite must watch for viewers both young and old, and will be a favorite of many people. Kudos to everyone involved in making this film a reality. Looking forward to seeing what lies ahead for this young and innovative director.
