thank goodness that's over!

I watched this movie every year as a child in elementary school. It was a very slow movie. There were a couple of times it made me almost smile-almost. You watch this child follow this balloon everywhere. It seems as if the balloon taunts him. Even for the smallest of minds it was a complete waste of time. Yes, even as a small child, I was bored to death and hoped to return to the class room for a day of work. Anything would have been better than to have had to sit through watching that balloon any longer! Apparently someone had to have liked it to have remade it in the 80's, and to make us watch it every year as if it were a true classic. I will say that I was not one of them, and would hate to see anyone waste their time or money on this film.
