The greatest memory of elementary school
Never before have I asked so many people about a movie and recieved nothing in response.. This obscure little movie is the one thing that reminds me of Elementary School, and the only people I know that have seen it went to my same school.. We saw this little gem constantly during school designated "movie time" and I'm very very thankful for that.. Though I've tried and tried I haven't seen it since then, so my memory is very sketchy... This movie reminds me as a take off of Jack and the Beanstalk, a kid searches for a turkey for his family thanksgiving and recieves a gigantic chicken in return.. Plots like this do not exist anymore.. If you have a chance, rent it, buy it, watch it over and over..
