Seriously?
11 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who the hell is writing all the positive reviews of this thing? It's astoundingly awful. Cheap, obviously re-used sets. Bad sound design, horrible dialogue, crap costumes. Bad color all around. Slow-paced directing and the worst, most unimaginative dialogue ever. The whole thing just feels lazy. Like some third rate children's theater that gets a grant to produce a movie. But not a big grant. Aileen Quinn isn't much but is at least somewhat watchable. And Helen Hunt, while she can't do much with the script she's been given, at least maintains her acting dignity. She's the best thing about this, really. There are SO many better family viewing options out there. Don't bother with this.
