I love this movie. It has adventure, comedy and a heartwarming story of
friendship and fatherhood. But don't get it twisted. This is not sappy, sugar coated kiddie movie. These kids have car chases with the police and the mob. You may remember Darius McClary from "Family Matters". It was the sitcom that made Steve Urkel a household name. Darius played Eddie Winslow. Anywho. Whenever you need a too laugh you self silly and see
some of the best car chases since "Smokey and The Bandit" , this is the flick for you. I've showed this movie to everyone I know from 18-85 years old and they all enjoyed it. This is truly a buried treasure.

Dear Santa...it's 12/19/10 and I am still waiting for my dvd copy of this movie. Maybe if I am a good I will get my copy for christmas next year. Ok. I know you tried. Whenever I get it I am sure it will be worth the wait. Maybe even some dvd extras. I now have an AARP card and I still love this movie. I have cookies to bake so I have to go now. Be blessed and not stressed.

I would watch this movie when I was a kid. I always loved and enjoy it. It is a story about two kids from different worlds who become friends. One boy from the suburbs and one from the streets. One boy had lost his father and another is waiting for his dad to come get him. They steal a car, Robb a store to get something that was taken from them back. Then go on a adventure to find something they both need and or missed.

This is a movie made in the 80s. It is not one of the clean cut crap movie you see today. This movie had kids cussing and using cap guns. If you don't like that stuff then this is not the film for your kids. But if you like a fun adventure with kids in a time long forgot. This is the film for you. I have not seen this movie in about 15 years. But I still love it and remember. It made me smile to see it again and I made sure to watch if a few times before my rental period expired then I bought it.

I still own the VHS regardless I haven't had a VHS player in 10 years. This movie is amazing and I'd love nothing more to see it on Netflix or released to DVD.
