A world unlike any you've ever known! Matt Spencer, a workaholic attorney and single father, is struggling to raise his three rebellious teenagers in the wake of his wife walking out on him. Chris Spencer, Matt's eldest son, is a handsome, over-achieving, straight-laced 18-year-old who is angry with his father about the divorce, even though his mother is the one who left. Daughter Claudia is a typical 16-year-old mall rat with too much time on her hands and the good looks that usually spell trouble. Youngest son Adam is a hip 13-year-old with a big mouth and a smart-alec attitude to go along with it.

The kids, selfishly un-excited about the trip, try to talk their father out of it, but he is steadfast in his determination to spend some quality family time together.

My kids (14 and 11) laughed all the way through. Note: this is NOT a comedy. Some parts kind of grab you but this is really very campy. I was surprised to see this make the STARZ lineup. Still entertaining in an off sort of way.
The acting is mostly borderline amateur. Some of the lines delivered by Kristina Roper combined her hand gestures resulted in howling laughter. At times Kristina's acting was serviceable. She is stunningly beautiful. In one fight scene where Kristina is supposed to be attacking with a whip, her style looks more like she's doing a ring toss. Really great fun.
Speakman, the Dad, shows considerable prowess with swords. But most of the fight scenes are crazy low production. The action scenes being several levels below the original Lost in Space.
