I reckon this must be the first film for Elijah Wood and Joseph Mazzello as they are so young. It has all the makings of a dramatic plot except it goes way off course. The abusive stepfather and two brothers who are far too cute. In fact the whole film is too cutesy with the boys uttering lines no kid would. Then the ending goes into the realms of fantasy that just doesn't add up. I believe 'Radio Flyer' bombed at the US box office and I'm not surprised.My Movie Rating: 5 / 10
a fav, but I haven't seen it in many years!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
A real heart-tugger. Joseph and Elijah are so young in this one. The story is adapted for children mainly. Now I'm maybe a bit too old for movies like this one. Still, I enjoyed it. Both kids show how good they are. The "Fisher"-story is very good, gives an inspiring edge to it.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
