Genuinely charming, this children's fantasy is the perfect antidote to POKEMON mania: Younger kids should be entranced, while their older brothers and sisters may just pick up on its gentle critique of a movie culture in which "action figures" and tie-in toys are

all-important. Based on a well-loved children's story by Lynn Reid Banks (and scripted by E.T.'s Melissa Mathison), the film tells the story of a boy (Hal Scardino) who receives a toy Indian warrior (Litefoot) and a mysterious cupboard for his birthday; when he puts the tiny figure in the

cupboard, it comes magically to life. Directed by Frank Oz, one of the originators of The Muppets.
