Identify a movie for me

Need help identifying a movie

I don't remember the name of this movie, only a few sections of the plot: This kid is picked up by this thing that looks like an elf, and they travel through a portal to fight this guy named Evil or something. The kid eventuallly defeats the guy, then this guy comes and takes his friends, saying he has to do battle with Evil alone.

Then the kid wakes up to find his house was on fire, and the parents open up an evil toaster and it blows up.

I have no clue what the name of the movie is, but I can't get it out of my mind. What is it?

Sounds like Time Bandits. But whatever you do, don't touch that DVD case! It's concentrated EVIL!

One of my most prized DVDs, that. Nthing everyone else: you're describing Time Bandits almost certainly.

No question, Time Bandits.
