FarrierCollins’s review published on Letterboxd:
"There's no greater gift than friendship."
This was just another movie I was deprived of in my childhood. Obviously once when you suspend your disbelief, I think there's some magical moments to be had here. I will give it props for having a sense of wonderment all throughout. Also, Tom Hanks hamming it up was fun.
P.S. Now I get why that know-it-all kid is PRIME meme material.
