I truly don't know how or why they made this movie. I suppose to see if they could get away with it. Let's just say that the acting and editing are horrible in this movie. Not to mention the writing. The story is a good idea, but probably would have worked better with children of an older age (instead of 12). This is more of a movie for younger (I mean really younger) adults and shouldn't be watched by anyone who has passed puberty. The only thing that made this watchable was the performance by Ralph Macchio, who plays a dead sax player. Even he can't pull this thing out of the muck though. I strongly recommend that you don't waste the money on this garbage.
