This is quite a good little film, with some good directing from Bob Hoskins. It is what you would call, a 'fun' film and the although the story is slightly unbelievable, certainly not as much i thought.
This light-hearted fantasy drama is about four children who venture into a rainbow, after one of them sees it land. While they are inside it, the oldest one steals three pieces of gold which are floating about inside it. They arrive back home to find that the world has gone corrupt and all the colours are slowly dissappearing from it. They realise that unless the gold is returned to the rainbow, then life will cease to exist because there will be no photosinthsis and therefore no oxygen.
A groovy little childrens film which can be enjoyd by the whole family. I am actually quite suprised that this film is not more well known, because it is something that children would really enjoy. If you have kids, then buy it them, and i guarentee that they will want it on twenty-four-seven.

A timeless classic 9 Aug. 2009
By Esse Arye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is one of those rare films that is enchanting, funny, exciting, adventurous and also perfect for all ages. It's everyone's dream to find the end of the rainbow -- and that's what this is about, literally, but also even more -- going for a ride inside of an incredibly beautiful rainbow, and what happens with the rainbow's special matrix of gold is stolen and the world starts to change into a dim black & white world of hate and violence (there's a great deep metaphor in this film, so even adults will like it on another level. The cast is superb: Dan Akroyd plays a bumbling small town sheriff and delivers some hilarious slapstick moments. Bob Hoskins is great as the warm-hearted grandfather, and the four youth's lead by Steve (played by rising star Jacob Tierney), each play their characters with passion. Also featuring prominently is Terry Finn as the concerned mother and Saul Rubinek as the science teacher. Kids absolutely love this movie, but adults will enjoy it throughly as well.
