It's a Macaulay Culkin film, say no more
8 September 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A glossily bland adaptation of the comic in which Macaulay Culkin is perfectly cast as the richest kid in the world. He has to save both his fortune and his family from the evil schemes of John Larroquette, with the help of his pals and his butler. This was never going to be a masterpiece, was it?

There are some likable performances here and there - Edward Herrmann and Christine Ebersole as Richie's parents, Stephi Lineberg as one of the kids, Jonathan Hyde as Cadbury - but the gags are so leaden and the dialogue so terminally banal that they all struggle to breathe life into the proceedings.

The writers seem to think that a rich kid being rich is novelty enough to sustain the film, which it isn't, and that having a posh English butler say things like 'Let's kick some butt' is comedy gold, which it isn't. Meanwhile Laroquette's plan of child murder, terrorism and faked suicides hardly sits well with the inconsequential, hollow tone of the rest of the movie.
