Overview
Rosie O'Donnell ('Beautiful Girls', 'Harriet The Spy') stars with Denis Leary ('Wag The Dog', 'Small Soldiers') and Dana Delany ('Fly Away Home', 'Tombstone') in this feel-good comedy about the laughter, excitement and fun that come with being a kid! Joshua is a thoughtful 10-year-old looking for some simple answers to life's eternal questions. The problem is that no one - including his concerned parents (Leary, Delany) and his colorful 5th-grade teacher (O'Donnell) - seems to be making any sense! Therefore, Joshua makes it his personal mission to unravel the mysteries himself... and in the process reminds everyone what it's like to wake up to the world for the very first time! With great performances from an incredible cast - you'll love all the comedy and adventure in this altogether unforgettable motion picture!
