Hart is her usual cute dream in a land-locked Love Boat that might remind you of your own clan.
15 January 2000 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

This movie looks like it was made in the early eighties as opposed to 1995. The cast is made up of TV personalities that used to sail the original Love Boat, including Laverne & Shirley's Squiggy, Three's Company's Mr. Roper, Welcome Back Kotter's Mrs. Kotter, Dody Goodman, Jo Anne Worley and A Christmas Story's sweet little Peter Billingsly now playing a bullying teenager. Throw in the 80's Joe Flaherty of SCTV and the 90's Melissa Joan Hart of Clarissa Explains It All and Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the only question left is where's Gilligan? With that said, the film makes for a nice and often funny picture that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Any one who has gone to a large family function such as a reunion, Thanksgiving dinner, or wedding, can relate to having to put up with a group of oddballs you probably wouldn't choose as friends. Hart is her usual cute dream and Jason Marsden as Billy does a good job in sort of a Matthew Brodrick type of role. There's also a nice performance by Susan French as Meema, the 100-year-old skateboard-riding matriarch of the family.
