Trivia

When Movie Mason (Mickey Rooney) tells Karen and Bryan that there's always magic at the movies, he says "And we all learn there's no place like home". This is a nod to Rooney's long-term friendship and partnership with Judy Garland who coined this phrase in The Wizard of Oz (1939) and whom he accompanied at the premiere of that movie and with whom he starred in many films.

Quotes

Lacy Ling: [talking fast] I straightened up the ticket booth, cleaned both ladies rooms, washed the popcorn maker and swept inside the elevator. Now what?
Pete Riley: [voiceover] Lacy Ling, a.k.a. "Racy Lacy." Why walk if you can run?

Wow!
2 November 2002 | by KurtTavaresSee all my reviews

This one of my favorite movies. My kid hates it. but i love it. Movie Mason (Mickey Rooney) knows every thing about movies. It is a must see movie. It is scary and funny at the same time. 5 out out of 5 stars! Only on Disney. There is a man who is going around making bad stuff happen. That is all i am going to tell you.
