    An excellent movie for families and children. I am surprised by some of the negative and off-putting comments and reviews. It would appear that many people are so needy of CGI tricks that merely excellent story and plot lines are no longer required! The two brothers are the real wonders in this movie; their escapades remind me of my brother and I when we were young. But now, childhood is not so simplistic and eventful.... computer games and social networks rob children of their childhoods. Too bad....but perhaps that is why I loved the movie so much...it wasn't so full of unreality that I couldn't believe the story. And...the two brothers were completely endearing.

    I want to personally find the director of this movie and force him to build a cardboard airplane and fly off a cliff.

    One of THE best movies ever made, IMO (right up there, and similar to, The Sandlot). Saw this during my childhood, but still think this movie is timeless. It's a movie literally anyone would love. BTW - what's up with the critics score? Seems like they just weren't paid to rate it higher. They don't make movies this good anymore.

    Radio Flyer is a disappointing film. It is about a father who recounts a dark period of his childhood when he and his little brother lived in the suburbs. Elijah Wood and Joseph Mazzello give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Richard Donner did a horrible job directing this job. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

    A unique family film that is equal parts enchanting and uncomfortable to watch

    This is a great film! It's really sad, but also really magical. I remember this from when I was a kid and it took me away. I watched it again recently and it transported in the same way again.

    The material is hard to watch while the movie itself is equal that.

    For those critics that find this movie appauling, clearly don't undertand what it's like to be a child victim of abuse. The fantasy world is definitely where the child's mind would go when something like this happens. The movie shines on that very well. Whatever Donner did or didn't intend the ending to mean, the point is the movie touched on a subject most people would like to shove away. The kids did a great job portraying brothers, who live in what really is a "normal" family. As sad as that is.
