As A child I loved this movie!
15 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching the movie now, yes I could see why it would get horrible scores. but as a 7 year old boy this movie was one of my all time favorites. Me and my brother would watch it all the time. We truly loved it. But that was when I was a simpler person. Back then I would have given it a 10, and now I would have given it probably a 4 or so. But for nostalgic purposes I will put it at a 7. I would easily go back and watch this movie just to relive my good ol' childhood days. It was all cheesily done, but the bad guys had a nice comical touch to it. And I remember enjoying the voice over for the grandpa that the kids made... Oh... those were the days...
