Yes, it's cheesy, yes it's a childs film, and yes, it's Canadian. But of my childhood memories, this movie stands out (Canadian pun intended). It is unfortunate that the film is now out of print with no signs of a DVD version or re-release evident. I was lucky enough to snag a VHS from ebay for $15. Let's just hope the tape doesn't wear out anytime soon.
It is a movie starring kids meant for kids. If you are looking for some sort of "inner meaning" don't bother watching it. If you are kid who wants to enjoy a fun movie see it.
SPECIAL NOTE: Up and coming rock singer Rufus Wainwright has a cameo appearance. He is credited as the "Singing Boy."
