A beautiful touching movie!
I have pet rats and they are the most sweet and loving creatures. This movie
portrayed the love that people can share with rats and it was truly a
beautiful movie. Ben was beautiful and Lee was a little cutey too. The
lyrics to Ben ring out beautiful and true. This is really a must see for
anybody who loves rats or even those who love animals in general. Some
people may view this as a horror movie, but it is really soooo much more. A
remake of Williard is apparently in the works, so fingers crossed that these
wonderful movies will be released on DVD..
Interesting 70s B-Movie
I am a big fan of 70s B-movies, especially those of the horror genre. Anyone
interested in the early 70s will find this movie a real treat! While not
that scary, it does have a number of interesting features, most notably the
title song sung by a very young Michael Jackson. The storyline is quite
good, not at all boring, and fans of Meredith Baxter Birney (Family Ties)
will enjoy seeing her playing the sister of David. As always, I love seeing
the funky clothing and interior design of 70s movies, and Ben features lots
of great shots of rooms and furniture, fashions, toys, and automobiles of
that era. One of the best "retro" parts is the supermarket, where very clear
shots of early 70s boxes of Kellogg's cereals are plainly seen. If you want
to be scared, rent something else. But if you want to see a groovy 70s
movie, this is a pretty good pick..
