Child Actors For Sale!
7 September 1999 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

Let's don't get crazy. There is nothing redeeming about this silly movie. At first I was wondering what the heck Melissa Joan Hart (who is in a supporting role) is doing in such an awful movie. Then I realized the "stars" were her less talented siblings. This movie is just a chance for Melissa Joan Hart's Hollywood mother to take advantage of Melissa's stardom and to showcase the rest of her brood (can anyone say "Macaulay Culkin"?).

The plot is stolen right from a Brady Bunch episode. The acting is on the level of public access television. Imagine watching the home movies of some stranger's children at their school play. The only person who could enjoy this movie would be named Hart or an MC Hammer fanatic.
