This movie was awesome!!!
I just got the movie off of e-bay and watched it again after all these years from when I saw it on television at the age of eight, and I can truly say it is every bit as awesome as it was when I first saw it! This movie shows you the magic of the child within and the magic of life in general! It rocks! The movie is about this twelve year old boy, Paul, your preteen whose growing up but in some ways doesn't really want to, you see him going through the various struggles, trying to get girls to notice him, trying to get into an R rated movie, and making a fool out of himself by goofing up while hes daydreaming, dropping ice cream on a record player and knocks all the merchandise off the shelf of a sporting goods store as he tries to shoot a basket. He still likes his old book about trolls but his mom thinks hes getting too old for that, but he refuses to stop believing in trolls and magic. He goes around looking for trolls, looking under bridges trying to find them, and finally meets a real troll named Ofoeti. At first though Paul doesn't believe that Ofoeti really is a troll because Ofoeti isn't what Paul imagined trolls to be. Soon however he does believe Ofoeti is a troll because he goes to this beautiful underground palace and his whole world changes. What happens next, well, I don't want to spoil it, but regardless, this is an awesome movie! I recommend everybody see it!
