Gentle comedy about a group of lovable ragamuffins taking in a wayward sea lion.
25 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Man. This movie has got it all. Cute kids. Fart jokes. A sea lion. What more do you need? I used to wonder if B.D. Wong had the chops to pull of a subtle comedy like this, and this movie proves he's got what it takes. Jennifer Coolidge shows she's more than just the dramatic actress so beloved in those Christopher Guest pseudo-documentaries and knocks this one out of the ballpark. That accent? Hilarious. Bronson Pinchot proves that he's more than just a one-trick pony with his portrayal of Roy. You can barely even detect his Meposian accent. Wow! And without going into too much detail, I'll just say that these kids worked great as a team. Move over, Li'l Rascals. There's a new group of youngsters in Cute City. Why these kids didn't get a series (Hello! "Slappy & the Stinkers: the Weekly Show") or at least a few MacDonald's ads is beyond me. Whatever. Sometimes I don't know what goes on in Hollywood to let talent like this slide. See this movie!
