Hi all,

I am looking for a 80's movie and I have no idea what the name of it is!
It stars a kid who looks very like Fred Savage but, I've been through his iMDB and none of his movies match.
The very basic plot (from what I can remember), is that there are group of kids and they get bullied in their neighbourhood. They then meet someone who (I think) kind of army trains them, and then they get their own back. One of the kids (the Fred Savage lookalike) drives a kids pedal car all the way through the movie.
There is one memorable scene that comes to mind. The good kids have water pistols and when they come face to face with the bullies, the bullies ask "What's in the gun?" They then shoot the bullies with what appears to be water with the reply "****" lol.
Please help!!!
It's driving me crazy!!!
Many Thanks
Lee

Are you sure it's not The Boy Who Could Fly? There's a subplot in that movie involving Fred Savage that sounds like what you're describing.

It should definatley be "The boy who could fly" (1986) In the sub-plot Fred Savages character is about 5-ish, obsessed with army games and toys, & he rides round on a small tri-cycle and gets bullied by older kids and plans to get them back with his army tactics lol.

(Bully) So, you thought you could get around the block hu?

(F Savage) Go ahead, make my day.

(Bully) Oh, im supposed to be scared of a water pistol?

(F Savage) Theres no water in this gun.

(Bully) So, whats in it?

(F Savage) P**S!

As he then peddles away as fast as he can [Cool]
