Pure Magic
30 November 2013 | by lisa_rwSee all my reviews

"The Magic Ferret" is a purely magical experience!! It is an absolute joy to meet six-year-old Sam and his companion Booger, an adorable little boy and his precious pet ferret who together, yearn to find a "forever home." Jacob Tremblay is a natural as Sam and Falcor the ferret nails the part of Booger. In an attempt to impress prospective adoptive parents, Sam transforms himself into the "Great Sambini" with Booger as his assistant. Beverley Elliot is wonderful as the compassionate and maternal Mrs. Rassenti. Fred Ewanuick and Lisa Durupt as Mr. & Mrs. Parker are fabulous as well! This is a feel-good film that is suitable for all ages and will give you warm fuzzies all over (and I don't just mean the ferret)! Kudos to Director Alison Parker on bringing a bit of magic into our lives!
