The film tries hard to be upbeat, but most of the time it's an incoherent, depressing mess. Mazzello and Wood are alright, but they don't seem up to the challenge of playing abused youngsters. And the fantasy is so ludicrous, it's indescribable! The script seems like something Spielberg thought about filming, and then decided to throw away into the shredder, never to be seen or heard from again. No matter how hard the filmakers try, it's an idea that just doesn't seem to gel on screen.
