Communion at Witch Mountain

"Race to Witch Mountain" is good for tweens and older kids, tolerable for grown-ups if you can take all the annoying clichés and the deliberately bad acting. The plot is very freely based on a science fiction novel by Alexander Key, and has been adapted for the movie screen three times by Walt Disney. This is the third version! Let's just say it involves UFOs, robots, MIBs, conspiracy theorists and a UFO fandom convention in Vegas. A bizarre detail: the guy called “Whitley Strieber” in the film *actually is* Whitley Strieber, who is thus starring himself?! OK, I admit that little detail got my hooked, and made my increase the star rating from three to four…
