The story centers around a young boy "Gennero" (Jerry Barone) trying to raise "two bits" (25 cents) to see a movie. It features his dying grandfather, played nicely by Al Pacino. Along the way the 12-year-old encounters interesting people and events.
Some have criticized Pacino for taking this role. I guess they want him to be a cop in every film. Well, he's a great actor and shows his diversified talents well in here. Whatever.....this film is loaded with charm and a nice story that's like a good book: hard to put down once you start.
At 84 minutes, it doesn't overstay its welcome, either. Even though there is little profanity, I'm not sure I would recommend this as family fare because the film touches on a sexually-disturbing doctor and his wife.
