Good Television
4 April 2004 | by VtlfjellmanSee all my reviews

Too much of the stuff on Television today is not appropriate to even show your kids this movie was one of the few you could watch with the whole family and still enjoy sure it was the ever expectant happily ever after and very predictable. Everyone wants to see the underdog succeed and that is exactly what happened. Who wouldn't want a bike like that? If they made them now everyone would be in line to purchase one. If only the writers of today could write some good quality instead of just continually copies of another persons ideas. Ask Max is a good quality movie and it really captures the best of the 80's also. I would recommend this film as long as you can still find it because it is quite hard to get a hold of. Overall 9/10.
