Pretty good family movie!
11 August 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Alright, I'm going to give this a 10 out of 10, just to counter some of the ridiculous reviews that this movie got on IMDb. It looks like some people saw this movie with the wrong expectations, really. If you expect something like Naked Gun or Airplane (which are great Nielsen-movies too, by the way), sure, you'll be disappointed. Cause the joke-density isn't nearly as high, all jokes are PG-rated and thus less appealing to the more mature audience and Nielsen's character sometimes even seems to know what he's talking about rather than acting like a complete clown.

But that's because Family Plan is a whole different movie! It's a family movie, not one of those slapstick that we all know Nielsen from! And sure, I know movies in this genre aren't popular with the 'serieus film critics', but I enjoyed it! I really did! The whole cast is showing a lot of enthusiasm and Trevor Morgan and Zachary Browne are doing a great job at portraying two mischievous kids who still have their hearts in the right place.

Family Plan is really a movie that you can just watch with a smile on your face the whole time, rather than being buried under an avalanche of jokes. I like the fact that it never goes slapstick and that there's enough space for the touching story of two boys looking for a home. So what that the story isn't that original, and that it's not Nielsen's best work. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end, and that's what you should judge a movie on!
