    I've seen this movie multiple times and have replaced my VHS version with a DVD. It's a sad story, but it makes you think. It's one of those movies that you watch through to the credits and discuss its meaning when it's over.

    A Good Family Movie

    We use to watch this movie (VHS version) as a family. It was one that was watched over and over again. It was a good learning plot with friendship between brothers and some dreams. Radio Flyer and the Sandlot were big winners in our house!

    You won't regret watching this movie. This is a must see. Tom Hanks isn't in it much at all, but the child actors are stars now and the acting is superb throughout the film.
