I guess you will do anything to get a bike even if it involved something criminal. Obviously, Smiley didn't know that. Colin Petersen did a great job scampering around the countryside as Smiley. He's not a bad-looking kid either; likewise his buddy Bruce Archer.

Not a great film but nevertheless well worth watching especially for film buffs. Colin Petersen is quite appealing in the central role of Smiley.
