The Peanut Butter Solution Movie Review
What Happens When You Misuse The Peanut Butter Solution?
Bald is beautiful...unless you are a young boy who suffers a bad fright and has all of his hair suddenly fall out. That is the story in The Peanut Butter Solution, a rare movie from 1985, which is currently only available on VHS videotape and not on DVD.
What follows the loss of his hair is both touching and humourous. It really is a serious problem when he loses his hair but he does not quite follow the recipe that he receives for curing baldness and adds too much peanut butter...bald might have been bad but once that hair started to grow...look out! What follows is a hairy mess and, as the cover says, "a hair-raising family adventure" that will make you laugh out loud.
On this page, find more information and reviews of The Peanut Butter Solution. And, just in case you want to try it out, you will also find a printable Peanut Butter Solution recipe, just in case you ever find yourself in the same regrettable circumstance.
"Great balls of fire!
There's not a whisker left."

The Peanut Butter Solution Storyline
"Michael is an 11-year old who investigates a supposedly haunted house that has recently burned down. What he sees scares him so badly that he faints, and on top of that, two days later all of his hair falls out. A couple of ghosts give him a magic recipe to make his hair grow back, but Michael puts too much of one of the ingredients - peanut butter - in the concoction and astonishing results occur!"

Reviews of The Peanut Butter Solution
"For years, I have been trying to figure out the name of the creepy movie I saw when I was 9, where a boy lost his hair, put something on his head that made it grow and it grew too fast...Now I know and it feels good...like a warm snuggly blanket. There should be a society called The Peanut Butter Solution Viewers Anonymous... for all the innocents who saw this movie in their youth, only to be haunted by it and be told by their friends and loved ones that this movie doesn't exist." ~ A Very Happy Girl
- Review of The Peanut Butter Solution From Canuxploitation
"The Peanut Butter Solution has proven it has just enough of an eccentric Dr. Seuss touch to permanently wedge itself in the memories of young viewers. Watching it again today, the film holds up generally well, despite some dated special effects. Lik
- Review of The Peanut Butter Solution from Jon's Guilty Pleasure
"The Peanut Butter Solution is a crazy kids movie that makes little to no sense, has some pretty bad acting, cheap effects, and would probably scare the hell out of the uber PC children we have today. Still, it's enjoyable to watch for being as weird

Listen To The Magic Man Video by Celine Dion
One of two English songs that Celine Dion performed for The Peanut Butter Solution.
There is no Peanut Butter Solution movie soundtrack available. The movie did, however, feature two songs by Celine Dion called Listen to the Magic Man and Michael's Song. They were Celine's first English language recordings.
Once I discovered the fact that Celine Dion was the singer, I had to go back and listen to the songs again. I did not realize that I would be able to watch the Listen to the Magic Man video online.
