Brandis and Dangerfield made a funny team
1 February 2006 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

I did not think I would like this movie because I had never liked Jonathan Brandis. After I saw Ladybugs, I had a new appreciation for him as a very natural person and an excellent actor. Brandis really made this movie work. Instead of trying to ham it up and go over the top, Brandis plays it real. Like if some old man (Dangerfield) asked you to do one silly thing, and then it takes off from there. Brandis made the silly story seem plausible. Thanks to Brandis being a great straight-man, it made Rodney Dangerfield's one-liners and antics very funny. Sadly Brandis died at a young age, in 2004.

Rodney Dangerfield always made any movie a lot better than the writing was. In Ladybugs he was probably too old for the role as the first-time coach of a kid's soccer team, but in spite of the weird story Dangerfield delivers some great lines and funny moments. I laughed a lot watching this movie. The supporting cast is pretty good. The guy who plays Dangerfield's boss is a bit too annoying, but he was supposed to be the bad guy, after all.

This is a fun movie to watch with family and/or children. At the bottom of all the humor there is a very positive message about friendship, family, and love.
