Somewhat underrated
26 October 2013 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I can say this movie is clearly underrated. Maybe my age, my memories, childhood etc... It is cute, it has good sense of humor (Leslie Nielsen!!!), and don't expect great plots, huge surprises, this is a family movie which provides humor for everybody in the family.

I really feel it has nice interpretation of kids' difficulties who have troubles with having integration to family life, and well, I am pretty sure I will be somewhat clueless when it comes to dealing with kids like the parents.

Brilliant movie? Not. Worth to see? Of course, give it a chance. Don't get fooled by the low rating.
