| I am going to watch it again an I will change my comments if I change my point of view...
Well, I'm disappointed that this movie has so few fans...

I agree that there are many other fine and even greater than this one but still it deserves more than that! I've watched a very long time ago and I found it very good. Now I'm gonna watch it again to see whether I am going to like it again but still I'm sure that for the little ones it's a suitable movie.

As far as I remember it's about a family that is always busy and can't find enough time for the kids who end up in hypnotizing the parents.

There's no brutal action in it which differs it from films nowadays, but I'm guessing that kids would love it.
