Up, Up, and Away into the world of impossible land
16 July 2002 | by chrishewittpianoSee all my reviews

This movie was okay, but it could have been better. It was a little short in my opinion, didn't really have in depth detail about their families & friends, but other than that, this film is fun and worth watching. I liked the music in this, and the way that the surrounding was so comforting. It was very neat in many different ways. The only thing that was a little unbelievable is besides the fact that the father can fly, is that the kids don't really look like 8th graders. On this, they look like 6th graders. But you know like in some movies people are always older than they really look. I really think that they should make a sequel to this. It would make the first one twice as popular and it would be something else fun to watch. I give this a 10/10 even with all of those concerns that I have about it. I think everyone should see it!
