Worse Corey Haim film I saw
19 September 2010 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer by the name of Tim Cox sums it all: "Silly film, but then again, I think being silly was the point. While it is silly, it's not well done silly."

Beyond "License to Drive" all the Corey Haim comedies are must avoids. Based on other reviews I read. "License to Drive" Rocks, "Double O Kid" sucks.

I saw four other light hearth comedy films with Haim, from that area. Not that they are good but they are better. "Fast getaway" 1 and 2 have much higher productions value. "Dream a little 2" and "The Dream Machine" are more entertaining.

I always give a four if the movie managed to have me sit through the whole thing, and for that film I can say I am being generous.

It was watchable but completely uncreative. All the jokes were things you saw in the three Stooges or any Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Another reason I saw this film was because I was curious about the 90's outputs of Corey Haim's, after his death. Since I was unfamiliar with those films. Not to put all these effort by him from period down, I'll suggest you to watch "Oh! What a Night" it's a coming of age story of young boy in the 50's. If someone else would be curious about good Corey Haim films from the 90's. But the"Double O Kid" doesn't provide.

In my opinion what poisoned Haim's career is that they tried to repeat is success that he had in the very good but shallow comedy "License to Drive". It's OK to try a new story with the same humor, but they fail with the humor. According to most reviewers all the comedies he did in the 90's, 90% of his work from this period, suck.

So if you need an example of bad Corey Haim comedy film from the 90's, here you go.

Finally the movie is harmless, if you have a DVD laying around your house and you have a kid 12 and under. He might actually enjoy it and it's quite respectable, family wise, in it's content.
