EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES (1964)

Emil is a boy on his way to see his grandmother in Berlin and bringing her some money. While on the bus he is given candy that puts him to sleep. When he wakes up he realized he was robbed by the man who gave him candy and now he must find him and get the money back. He meets a group of kids who fancy themselves detectives and together they concoct a plan to recover the money and bring the thieves to justice. I know what you are thinking, “What?! A boy was drugged in this movie?!” Yep. But while that fact is pretty messed up, the movie as a whole turned out to be better than we thought it was going to be. While it was no Goonies, it was kinda fun to watch these group of kids take on adult criminals.
