It's bad enough 12-year-old Ryan Maguire (Andy Weiss) has to live with his Aunt Rita and be the new kid at school. What's worse is that he's been designated as the next victim of the bully who runs the schoolyard. But when Ryan finds a magical pair of sneakers that let him fly, he knows he stands a chance -- especially with the help of his new friend, Nicki, and a dog named Theo.

"You call that a soccer ball, I'd rather kick you!!!"

""Come on, lets get him!!!" Flyin Ryan is a totally trippy film. It's about a tinny poor kid that gets a magic pair of heelies tht grant him the ability to fly. He moves to a new town and he does'nt even own a skateboard. Mean, spoiled, rich kids, who own skate boards, are always pestering him and they push him into a lake and then Ryan somehow floats 20 feet out into the lake. "Are you having fun yet?" Sorry if this seems confusing but "my brain must of got a little water-logged in the lake." Ryan and his girl paddel all the way across the biggest lake in california to buy some wheels in an old town. Also ryan flys to, and breaks into a factory to save his dog. Then he ecscapes using a rope. A black belt in karate kicks a kid in the chest, jumps over a motorcycle, and then catches a tenis ball all in a row. It was awsome! Dirk is the best bully I've ever seen in a movie. You have to watch out for the crazy aunt, shes always steling things. It's because she's poor. And also watch for Tobys' magic shirt that changes during the first chase. I am very confused about the many incoherant scenes that would randomly pop in and out. I got to go, "I'm going to take this box upstairs.""
This movie is truly amazing (ly bad)

"Wow, I see what everyone was saying. This definitely has to be the best movie ever! Let me give you a few examples of its amazingness. For example, what other movie ties in totally random Animal Planet scenes throughout the movie while brilliantly avoiding attaching them to the plot in any way? Your kids will absolutely love this movie (assuming of course they were born without any conception of reality). I really can't believe that this movie didn't win the academy award for special effects (which rival movies like Lord of the Rings and the Matrix). Like the scene where he's flying above the factory. You can almost imagine that he's acting! The brilliant screenplay will tug at your heartstrings with such profound quotes as "Mom...are we there yet? There are nothing but trees around here." If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm being sarcastic. This movie was horrible. Don't buy it if you value your sanity."
Great Movie for Young Kids!!!!!

"Flyin' Ryan is great fun. I have two young children, ages 5 and 7 and there aren't many movies I feel right about showing them. Flyin' Ryan was fun and had a good story to tell. Yes, it is for young kids, with lots of animals, a fantasy adventure and a bully. Andy Weiss is the lead actor and he is great. So is the bully "Dirk".
This movie isn't all Hollywood. The movie takes place in a small town - and it looks like a real small town.
Flyin' Ryan is an indie film for YOUNG KIDS - like Napoleon Dynamite is for teenagers."
