5.0 out of 5 stars Address Unknown (1997), March 29, 2008
This review is from: Address Unknown (DVD)
Starring Kyle Howard, Johna Stewart-Bowden. Matt Kester (Howard) is a sixteen year old boy whose father died in a car accident 10 years earlier. One day, while he is exploring the woods with his friends, they come across a bag of undelivered mail. One piece of mail is addressed to Matt and is from his father. The letter leads Matt, and the daughter of the other man who died in the car accident, in search of a stolen stamp and the real story of how their fathers died.

Address Unknown is a great suspense-filled, family-friendly movie. The kids acting is great (I especially loved Matt's friends who are the comic relief in the movie). As with all family films, there are some unintentionally funny "emotional scenes". Overall, worth watching.

Be aware that the story does involve murder and kidnapping. However, very little violence is shown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie for the family, December 29, 2012

This review is from: Address Unknown (DVD)
This is a good family movie about 2 young kids finding out what happened to their dads who were killed in an accident. Plus it has a budding romance between a popular girl and an shy, insecure boy. It is fun to see how the tender feelings grow and change as they discover the truth about the accident and wonder how things could have been different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids Go Postal (been waiting to use that one!), February 17, 2012

This review is from: Address Unknown (DVD)
This is not a Hollywood blockbuster. What is is, is a nice movie. Scratch that. A very nice movie.
If you're bent on finding holes in the plot, you'll probably find them. But in overlooking them you'll find a very watchable, entertaining movie. Even upon re-viewing it, it didn't drag and kept the attention of both adults and kids.
The young cast carry the story very capably. There are such genuine (and awkward) moments of "pure kid" that I found myself laughing and saying, "Yea, that's what it was like!" (I love the scramble over the couch when mom suddenly came home and found the kids sharing a pizza and going over clues!). The acting wasn't strained, or overdone as it can sometimes be with young actors. They came across as so genuine. The better-known adult actors did a fine job of stepping back and letting the kids carry the plot, providing just the right support.
It's a wonderful story about living with people missing in your life, finding meaning, filling holes, finding new ones to love.

It starts with a mysterious bag of mail lost. A tragedy. A young son missing his father. Finding the bag. A clue. The search: and all of the excitement and intrigue along the way.

Very "small town", family friendly, of "After-School Special" caliber.
As I've said, parts are far-fetched. But hey! Not every movie can spoon-feed you everything, and the imagination does need some exercise from time to time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great family movie!!, May 23, 2013

This review is from: Address Unknown (DVD)
When looking at some of the movies recommended on the Amazon site, I ran across this one. I hadn't heard of it before but after reading the description, I decided to order it. This is a great movie with action, suspense, and even some very touching parts. The acting is very good by all, and it would be a perfect mocie to watch with the whole family.
