I would hope that Sasha was wearing a body suit to make him look heavier, because if a boy that young was that fat, he would be DEAD before he's 40 from clogged arteries!

I fell in love with Jonathan and Cody, they were great! especially the scenes where Cal was teasing the older Sister! I also liked the scene where they released the Lady Bugs, it was like they were releasing the spirit of Cal's older brother.

Cody is one those kind of boys that just reaches out and grabs my attention, and I just can't take my eyes off him :D

to the point that I've had to watch this movie a couple of times to get the full spectrum of the storyline

An entertaining little movie of typical Americana. Sasha Neulinger is impressive as the fat showboy, Zachary Beaver, who has an answer for everything. The friendship between Toby and Cal is nicely explored. The scene where Toby dances on the main street with the attractive young blond girl is poignant. Good film that sort of washes over you. Slight mistake in the editing: When Cal comes into Zachary's caravan angry with Toby and throws the money he owes at him he's wet through. But the scene where he and Toby fall in the lake isn't until later. Just a mild mistake in an otherwise plesant film that should reside on any enthusiast of the boy actor's DVD shelf.
