Adventures in Appletown


Cousins Will and Clayton witness a crime, but are too afraid to tell anyone. With their friend Betsy, whose father has been wrongfully accused of the crime, they go on a journey to find the real criminal and at the same time redeem themselves.

Dove Review

Will and Clayton are cousins (played by the Sprouse twins Dylan and Cole) who become detectives to find evidence to expose the real person who killed Mr. Potter. But they also need to find the killer so they can redeem themselves because they did not tell the truth about the night in question. Their troubles come from all sides and some important facts come to light, not only about the crime but also about each other.

This is a wonderful family movie filled with comedy, mystery and the mischievous twins who bring it to life. It also portrays the importance of friendship and family commitment even if it does not always benefit you. There is also the lesson that telling small lies sometimes turns into bigger lies. We award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12+.
