I very much enjoyed Phantom Tollbooth, a rare occurrence of the movie being worthy to the book. With weird music, great writing, and somewhat educational.

The plot of this film is that there's this boy named Milo. He leads a crappy life because he can't make up his mind about anything, when ever he's inside he longs to be out, and whenever he's outside he long's to in (that was from the book). Well one day he find's this strange box. In the box, there's a freaky tollbooth that talks. Then afterwards there's this car that shows up, he gets in the car and goes on his quest for happiness.

Even though it may seem like a acid trip when you see it, as the film goes on, you can tell that there's method to the madness. I would suggest this film to anyone.
