Movie: Spin

2003 Movie
Rated: PG-13
1hr 47 mins
My Rating: 3 (out of 4)

8 year old Eddie Haley (Max Mader) just lost his parents in a plane crash, and is left in the care of his Uncle Frank (Stanely Tucci). Frank is an Air Force Major, and has no idea what to do with his nephew and decides to ask his caretaker Ernesto (Ruben Blades) and his wife Margaret (Dana Delaney) to take care of the boy while he is off in Guam building things.

Ernesto and Margaret raises Eddie as their own, and now tough teen Eddie (Ryan Merriman), who sneaks to get a smoke, is trying out for the football team at the new school where Margaret is now teaching. There he meets Francesca (Paula Garce), a girl he met when he was 8 years old. Francesca is very beautiful, and it hard for Eddie to control his feelings.

Frank returns to teach Eddie how to fly his late Dads plane. Frank tells Eddie, the Haley's is a flying family. After a few lesson from his Uncle Frank, Eddie is flying the plane by himself. Around this time, Francesca has an incident, and Eddie takes off in the plane to comfort her. While there with Francesca, who is in need of a Hospital, Eddie offers to get her there fast in his plane.

While on the way to the Hospital, the plane has a problem, and after some helpful guidence from his Uncle Frank, Eddie crash lands the plane without any injuries.

This was a good movie. Ryan Merriman, who plays the tough teen Eddie could have done a better acting job, but all in all, it's still a very good movie, and I would recommend watching it. You can Buy the Movie here:
