cobraden: a nice glimpse of some Chilean history from the 70's as the military with CIA backing overthrew the democratically elected government. It's the story of two boys from different social classes and their friendship in this time of political unrest.
cobraden: Lots of product endorsement, so you are seeing Mac in a 95 minute commercial. I was actually surprised that the director didn't give him the last name of Donald. Yes, it has a predictable plot, but if you just lighten up a bit, then it is pretty amusing.
cobraden: Should be required viewing for anyone with children or planning to have children. This shows that acceptance and love is all a child needs, so they can live life full like God planned. It doesn't deserve the rating it received, so I just warn people to watch with an open mind, and they will end up loving the movie and it's message.
