Storyline

After finding out that their mother is going to be working through another school holiday, two children are shipped to spend the holiday with their Grandfather. On their way to their Grandfather, the children decide to fly to see their mother in Hong Kong instead but they need money for tickets. They accidentally run into two criminals at the airport and end up in a taxi with them. At the criminal's hideout, the children decide to send a ransom note to their Grandfather to fund their flight to Hong Kong and help the criminals pay a debt. Shenanigans ensue and like O. Henry's novel, of "The Ransom of Red Chief" the ransom decreases as time passes. Written by Shanna M.

The world according to Disney
13 June 2001 | by (Lewiston, Idaho) – See all my reviews

If Disney had their way in this world, It would be the world as it portrayed in this film:

*Mom works for a magazine. I think she's divorced, though the word divorce isn't mentioned.

*She has two kids, Jay & Tracy.

*Now, Mom is detained in Hong Kong during their Easter vacation.(Any one ever heard of Easter vacation, or did I miss something when I was growing up in the seventies?)

*The kids have a skunk as a pet!!(It's unthinkable that a child of any age would want a skunk as a pet) I forgot-this is not the real world! This is after all the world according to Disney.

*Jay utters the words "If mom can't bring her vacation to us, we'll take ours to her" But Tracy is realistic. She says "Where do we get the $1200 to pay for the two airline tickets?" Yea right! In the real world, this is unthinkable! But don't forget-this is not the real world.

*Two men try to rob a safe at an airport, they get away of course-not successful in their attempt to get the money. The two kids get in the same cab as the two robbers at the same time! They go to their hide out. They own a garage, and they are building high rises on both sides of it. Is this for real? It must be according to Disney!

*The Grandfather sees the two kids go inside the hideout with the robbers, but he doesn't call the police Instead he want to teach the children how to be better citizens. Do grandfathers let their grandchildren go inside a hideout with a couple of robbers? They do at least According to Disney!

*Try this: Two gangsters are after Duke & Bert, because they owe them $7000.00. $9000.00? $11.000? $13.000? They failed at their airport robbery, now they have 72 hours to get the money. What to do? Tracy has an idea: Stage a kidnapping, have grandfather pay the ransom who is a millionaire. Let's see if I get this straight: Grandfather wants to teach the children to be better citizens only to get a ransom note from the so called "kidnappers"? I guess this is normal according to Disney.

*After sometime, grandfather calls the police. Mom hears about the "Kidnapping" and she returns................

I could go on, but that would give it away! You get the picture? I know this is only a movie-but it's interesting to note a contrast between the real world and the world according to Disney. The events depicted are unthinkable and unrealistic.

Where do script writers get the ideas for this trash? I have no idea, but I do know this: They have a perverted view of the world. I enjoy this film though. Just don't forget: It's not the real world, but the world according to Disney!
