I read youth books with a grain of salt because their mysteries are almost always more dynamic than the crime that adult mysteries appear to be stuck in; thus worth tolerating an immature demographic. My uncharacteristically low star feedback is a result of this and misspent focus of the story, which interrupted the mystery and adventure portions. Chad lives with his Aunt and Dad, who is hardly there. His friendship with the critical neighbour, Jeannie is nonsense. With one disrespectful remark, he is convinced his Dad is dating his fellow actress.
Their elderly neighbour needs her pets tended while she is convalescing in hospital.

Beane is in the hospital, so Chad watches her dog for her. He thinks someone broke into Mrs. Beane's house and is coming back for more so he resolves to spy on the house and catch the culprit. I loved reading Betty Ren Wright's ghost stories growing up. I saw this was written more recently and decided to revisit my past. What a disappointment- flat writing, plot was not exciting, and I didn't care about the characters at all.

Parkes first conceived the idea for Sneakers in , while doing research for WarGames. The role was changed because Lasker and Parkes believed that it took too long for her character to develop. Once Robert Redford was attached to the picture, his name was used to recruit other members of the cast and crew, including the director Robinson, who had little initial interest in the project but had always wanted to work with Redford. At one point during the project, Robinson received a visit from men claiming to be representatives of the Office of Naval Intelligence , who indicated that for reasons of national security, the film could not include any references to "a hand-held device that can decode codes".
Robinson was highly concerned, as such a device was a key to the film's plot, but after consulting with a lawyer from the film studio he realized that the "visit" had been a prank instigated by a member of the cast, possibly Aykroyd or Redford.
Too Many Secrets
He had initially scoffed at the script based on its title alone, but his agent persuaded him to actually read it, and he reconsidered. Afterward, he told his agent, "Now I know what a hundred million dollars at the box office reads like. When he was shooting the scene where he and McDonnell eat at a Chinese restaurant, Robinson told him he could do anything he wanted to make her laugh.
It set the tone for the rest of the shoot," he recalls. I made up lines including one about pounding chicken breasts in the kitchen during our second date. Near the end of the shoot Robinson said the only way it could have been better would have been if the lab lost the film, so they would have had to do it all over again.
Leonard Adleman was the mathematical consultant on this movie. The film's press kit was accompanied by a floppy disk containing a custom program explaining the movie. Parts of the program were quasi-encrypted, requiring the user to enter an easily guessable password to proceed. The film received positive reviews from critics upon its release.
Writing for the Los Angeles Times , Kenneth Turan called Sneakers "[a] caper movie with a most pleasant sense of humor," a "twisting plot," and a "witty, hang-loose tone. He singled out Redford and Poitier as looking and acting too old to be in this kind of film now. He calls the plot "feeble," resulting in a film that is "jokey without being funny, breathless without creating suspense". He calls the ensemble an "all star gang," but says the "performances are generally quite bad.
