Nutty Boy II: The Adventure

Another sign of Hollywood's global reach, this Brazilian feature about a rambunctious boy and his friends hunting a fire sprite to ignite fireworks for their town's centennial could have been made by the Spielberg machine. The kids are all cute towheads, the town looks like Latino Disneyland, and the adults are either eccentrics or bumbling idiots. Directors Fernando Meirelles and Fabrizia Pinto seem to have modeled the plot after The Goonies while drawing visual inspiration from TV's Tales From the Crypt.
