Childish and retro feel
24 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

The acting in this movie was decent. Even the child actors did a decent job of delivering their lines. The script is a bit odd, though, as is some of the camera-work. For example, in some scenes the characters appear to be very far away from each other, yet they can communicate without shouting. Further, when each character speaks in these scenes, the camera abruptly cuts to whoever is speaking (which adds to the feeling that the characters are nowhere near each other, because the speaker is the only one in the shot). As far as the script, the ending is pretty confusing and I didn't realize the movie was over until I saw the credits roll. The director also spliced in many random shots of wild animals, which I guess is okay in a movie geared at kids. At least the footage of the animals is great. I also enjoyed the '70s-style dress and soundtrack. The dad's eyeglasses are awesome. Plus, at one point some kids put on a school play and their costumes all look like one big acid trip. The school play has some heavy environmental messages that would make Captain Planet smile.
