Movie Reviews

Movie with a sweet message
Funkee Monkee | 10/16/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is not really about monkeys but a story about a young boy growing up and out of selfishness. It's wonderful to watch this boy take a big step to becoming a man by the things he experiences one eventful summer. I was satisfied to have my children watch a film with such a great message.It was also nice to watch a film with clean language. You won't be sorry you watched it.

Wonderful movie

"Like a previous reviewer stated, the title didn't catch me. The cover (I was 8 and judging by the cover was the way to tell) looked bored and showed off a boring deal. It didn't help that it looked rural. It just looked dull!How wrong I was! I haven't watched this movie in probably five years, but I remember it's magic. It was just a great, simple movie. You could relate to Jay-he was the troublemaker, yet often felt ignored. Corey Sevier is one of those actors that you see everywhere but you can't quite put your finger on it--but he's great!The highlights of this movie are simple scenes, really. Unlike most, there's no HUGE event that leads the movie. That said, it's a simple movie that even young kids can enjoy. Kids who's favorites movie list upon the Fast and the Furious, may not like it because it's not that kind of movie-but sensitive children are sure to love it!"
Excellent Movie for the Entire Family

"I went to the mall and saw this movie sold at Best Buy. I had the priviledge to watch it on cable just today. We need more movies like this to instill family values. I think this is a super movie for the whole family. Have some tissues ready."
Corey doesn't disappoint

"Great family movie----Corey Sevier does a 1st rate job playing Jay Berry. Why he doesn't get more recognition is beyond me. In my opinion he is just as good an actor as JTT."
