Looking for a movie. A kid wishes his parents would disappear and tried to get them back

Hi folks need help please. I remember a kid a boy, he wishes his parents would disappear or wishes he had a different family.

I remember he wished he could also fly above a washing machine / tumble dryer, (I can’t remember if this was the same movie or I might be getting mixed up.)

And I think he meets a band

I can’t remember much else. I don’t even know if these happened in the movie, I could be mixing a few different movies up. But I am sure they happened.

The kid got his parents back in the end I think.

It was in colour and was in the 90s or early 2000s I am sure of

And no it is not Home Alone 😀

Thanks

  1. i vaguely remember Elijah Wood starring in such a movie as a kid. i don’t remember the name, but i bet you could find it on wikipedia under the filmography bit. hopefully it’s that one.

Got something to say?
