Ta Ra Rum Pum - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Children finally have something worthwhile to occupy themselves with in the summer vacations - well, at least for three hours. Parents won't have a bad time either, especially if they don't mind the formula combination of action and songs. Nothing out-of-ordinary from the performances or the script but an easy one-time watch nevertheless.
