I haven't watched this movie since I was nine. My kids saw it in the video store the other day and wanted to get it, but I told them I needed to look over it again. I was nine in the 80s, and it was a decade of weirdness, for lack of a better word, in regards to films for children.
I haven't looked it up online again yet, but I do remember having such fond memories of this movie. My sister and I must have watched it at least 300 times. I can still remember lines from it. (Which I will NOT quote here.)
So, my question today is: have you seen this movie? Why or why wouldn't you recommend it to my children, or YOUR children for that matter?
Well, I'm off to do some research. I will let you know what I find out. I am sure to be shocked at some things in it that I had forgotten. (That happens to me sometimes- warm and fuzzy memories, then embarrassment watching a movie I had forgotten had bad parts.)
Why is it we tend to remember only good things about movies, and forget there are negative elements? I should start making a list of movies that are unacceptable, no matter how cute the front of the box is...Prince would no doubt recommend a whole spreadsheet in alphabetical order, etc..
