I saw it: on video and TV several times, most recently yesterday (rented from Netflix)
Synopsis: a 12-year-old’s wish to be a grown-up is granted
Special effects/design: Points off for Perkins’ wardrobe.
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, ). Pleasant, mostly. I kind of hate this era’s style of film making, and every frame of this movie is overflowing with it. Hanks makes it watchable, though.
