Audience Reviews for Josh and S.A.M.

½

The movie is ok but a little bit over the top, the whole adventure thing was pretty cool but it seems in the movie that the parents really didn't seem to care enough that there 2 boys stole a car and they hadn't even heard from them for a while. The funniest parts were when the little kid was driving the (7 yr old one) Because he kinda looked like a cool gangsta with the hat and drove fast... not the greatest movie but good to see if you like movies that are on the road alot

Not everyone's familiar with this one. Josh and his brother Sam are the typical fueding siblings. One day Josh gets so mad at his brother, he tells him he's a "Child Warrior", and his name is actually an acronym for S.trategically A.ltered M.utant! This sends them on a journey to Canada to escape being sent off to fight in the 'Child Wars'. Along the way Josh makes up another story that there is a "Freedom Fighter" named "The Liberty Maid", and they eventually meet a woman that actually looks alot like The Liberty Maid! A crazy, but fun adventure.
