filled with nostalgia and great memories

With key characters like Melissa Joan Hart, Keenan and Kel this film is a total blast from the past and in a league of its own. I caught myself saying "I used to love that show" so much. It also takes you back to the very very beginning of Nickelodeon and gives you a fun little history lesson. I would recommend this to everyone who is a fan of the children's network. 10 out of 10 for sure!!!
