Another AGFA screening (there are so many this year! I didn't even see them all. I missed Tammy & The T-Rex). This is a "children's movie" made in canada about a boy who goes bald because he climbed into a burned out house and saw a ghost so then the ghost gives him this recipe for hair growth serum but the kid uses too much peanut butter so he grows hair like an inch an hour, attracting the attention of an evil art teacher who kidnaps 20 kids and puts them into child labor making expensive paintbrushes using the kid's hair that paint magical animated paintings.
There's a lot to like here but maybe my main thing was how... disdainful most adults are to the children in the film. Even the kid's dad, like, barely cares about any of it. It kind of reminded me of those old Mr. Wizard shows where he was barely tolerable of the idiot kids helping with his experiments.Maybe it's a Canadian thing? or an early 80s thing?
Also, the kid's friend puts some of the serum on his pubes and they grow all the way down his pant legs... but then the movie forgets all about it! Serious plot hole!!!
