Very good!
14 June 2002 | by KrissetteSee all my reviews

I watched this movie awhile back. I had missed the first 30 minutes of it, but instantly fell in love with it.

It was very charming and cute. And it had been the first time I really seen Jon Voight in a movie, besides Anaconda. Which he played a bad guy in. (Jonathan Hyde also stars in Anaconda and I feel he, like Jon, is a great actor.)

I must admit this movie does have its spotlight of decency, but sometimes it falls in the category of, "Corny and childish." I'm a true child at heart, so I find this movie remarkable, others may not think so, this movie definitely isn't for everyone. Just those who actually like fairy tales, and toys coming alive, friendship and love. That's what it's really all about and I can relate to it in some way. It's a fantasy movie, nonetheless you have to have fun with it. Because that's all it is about -- fun.

Out of 10 stars I give it 8. I recommend it to all the children at heart. This movie is truly heart warming! ///_~
