First let me recite a funny story. I jumped on it while zapping at 3am and I noticed the X rating icon on the top right. Then I saw the kid. So I was like "they now put kiddie porn on TV or it's Fellini extravaganza?!?" Yes, there was a rater who was THAT dumb. She put an X (not even R!) rating to a definite PG and the network put this flick on the late late night time zone!!! Anyway, one minute was enough to figure out what kind of movie this is, so here's the review: At the beginning it's an action thriller for kids. No violent scenes or real tension, you just care (well, kind of) for the sake of the protagonist. Then it gets to a point where the writers decided to forget the plot and divert to farce, so it's pure brainless comedy. At the end, they remembered the plot again and avoided the dreaded G by having some shootings. But in general it's light entertainment, following the ultra-smart-kid-solves-the-mystery-by-himself guideline. Okay for a family rental, don't expect anything more.
