Audience Reviews for Candleshoe

Candleshoe, is an unforgettable Disney classic from my childhood, with a likable cast, just like the screenplay that bring inspiration of pirates and modern thiefs. Great comedy to all family and lovers of this classic, the only problem of Candleshoe it's the romantic vision of upper class. Fresh.

This one holds great memories for me. I love the cartoon that was either at the end or beginning too.

I remember when I first saw this movie on the Disney channel. I was so young! I just watched it a few years back and still find it an adorable film.

Jodie Foster was so young in this!!
