It was a lot of fun watching this movie for the first time... I missed it when it was release more than 20 yrs ago. It doesn't matter, funny just the same.

Good movie, good quality VHS

Blast to the past, I absolutely loved this movie growing up and it's nice to have a piece of nostalgia sitting on my shelf. The VHS quality was very good (some now-a-days are starting to degrade depending on who you buy from) so I was very pleased with this purchase.

Great family movie.

A very entertaining movie about a very old parrot named Mac and morrally very educational. A young boy tries to help his family and ends up on a wonderful adventure with a talking parrot. Treasure hunting and pirates and beautiful scenery are all to be expected in this great family movie. My 6 and 8 yr old daughters loved this movie. And I loved it for its good acting and unique story and the great values it was teaching as my children sat spell bound.

We love this movie. It is a favorite of my kids and their friends. Simple, non offensive and wonderful photography with the macaw. Even our parrots like this one!
