Wow, what a bad movie. They tried to make a good kids family movie, and what did they make? A cliche filled travesty, that's what. Music played at almost every scene, even the scenes that were pointless, so when it got around revealing the mother, I thought it was going to be pretty magical, with music and drama, you know, the stuff that was in EVERY SCENE BEFORE IT, BUT NO!!!! All it was was you hear a voice, the girl turns around, and the mom was there with food in her hands. No music or drama in the only scene that needed it. *Screams*. The acting was horrible and the only person that was both played at least decent and was likable named Buddy, who was played by, get this, Ronny Cox. So, this movie is horrible, plain and simple. But, if you own a copy, I wouldn't be too disappointed, because you could sell it on eBay for, what, 3 bucks?
