Ben secretly enters the local soapbox derby with a rag-tag group of friends to best school bullies.
User Reviews: There are no dogs in this film.
Not that are characters, anyway.
Nonetheless, it is a very sweet movie that would be absolutely perfect for a 9- and 6-year-old to watch for fun with their parents! It’s overall message is a positive, uplifting one, and the New Zealand accents add some much-needed flavor for American audiences. As a family, we often look through Netflix for something to watch on a Saturday night, and at times the pickings are decidedly slim. This movie has some silly parts for the younger kids, an innocent grade-school romantic subplot and lots of soapbox derby cars. The New Zealand scenery is interesting for the parents. This is a good choice.
