"Was this a made for TV movie? It sure felt like one. An attempt to add paranormal to Stand By Me, but ultimately fails. There's a lot of stuff in this movie that is never fleshed out so the viewer is left with a lot of questions or unsatisfactory conclusions. "

"Pretty good but could have done better. They needed to do something more with Pépinot who was just kind of there. They also had the start of a story with Le Querrec but it never went anywhere and the kid just disappears for the rest of the movie. Mondain was a distraction. That being said, the story does somehow manage to come together and the singing is great so it's worth a watch."

"Cute movie. This isn't a movie for young kids which should be obvious by the TV-14 rating, but some parents seem to miss that and think it's just a cute summer camp movie. Anyway, it's kind of a summer cheese movie and worth a watch if you are OK with stuff that doesn't make a whole lot of sense but just want to have fun. Stars Jack Gore, who plays a kid who likes to perform in musicals on the TV show The Kids are Alright. "

"Not at all what I was expecting, so bonus points for that. A generally good plot that suffered from some clichés and some confusion on what it wanted to be. Sometimes it wanted to be a nostalgia trip for 80s kids, other times it wanted to be for current kids. Ending was really weird. Not the non-stop fighting that we see in so many "hero" movies these days, and I am thankful for that. "

"Did its job in being super freaky. Did Georgie really say those things? Yikes! It really didn't need the jump-scares - this isn't Halloween or Friday the 13th. The psychological thriller parts were good."

"I love baseball movies and books, so I had to see this. A low budget but enjoyable independent flick about a kid and his baseball dreams. Good family movie. Feels a lot like a Christian move but is completely secular. If you like family movies, then you should enjoy this."

"Cute, but like many sequels does not live up to the first. References to Everything Is Awesome throughout, but the song never occurs. The references to other movies are the best part."
