Surprisingly enough, I actually liked this little Disney remake--of course, I've never seen the original, but still.. It's almost charming in its own cutesy syrupy way. As per usual, Danny Glover elevates this film, and Tony Danza almost turns in a credible performance(Translation: He doesn't ruin the movie..how about that?)
If you need to revel in early 90's live action Disney nostalgia, go ahead, sit through this thing.

Superbly cast and tensely directed thriller that was released the same year as "Seven," another excellent serial killer story. Hunter and Weaver are terrific. Also the last time singer Connick attempted to portray such a dark character, as one of the suspects.
