It was movie night once again, and our On Demand selection was “The Indian in the Cupboard.” This is one of those movies that I’ve seen trailers for over the years, but never thought I’d see it. The choice was between this and “Babe.”
In the movie, the main character is given a cupboard for his birthday and a skeleton key for it. He soon discovers that when he puts one of his toy Indians in there, closes the door and opens it with his key, it becomes real.
The movie was engaging enough for all of us to sit through it. I asked the boys what they would put in it. Ry selected one of his hot wheel cars. J wanted his stuffed animal in there. My mind went in the direction of Monopoly. I’d start inserting Park Avenue, and then all of the cash, turn the key, yeah..gas money.
