Goofs

In the scene where Wendy and her aunts are sitting on the small stairs and Desmond is asking them questions in the hotel room, he changes place all the time. Now, when he's standing at the stairs and talking to them, he changes place again, after one of the aunts has said: "That's none of his business." He then stands behind them. While saying "No matter,", looks at them with only his head turned. In the next shot, his whole body is turned at them. While saying: "You'll soon be out of my hair," the shot changes and he's looking at them with only his head turned again. See more »

A Kids Movie
14 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I started to read the prior comment, I thought I had accidentally brought up comments on Titanic or Gladiator.

Actually, I found this mildly amusing, It didn't have that humor/storyline for everyone of a Shrek or Nemo, but that is okay. Not every Kid's Movie has to appeal to the whole family. Since this is a Kid's Movie, and I don't like to rate/inflict adult standards onto purely Kid's Movies outside of appropriateness -- message, if any; language and type of action, etc. The whole thing boils down to "How did the kids react to it?"

Well, the kids liked it a lot. And at the bottom line, when the day is done, that is what counts when you rent or take your kids to see a Kid's Movie. That being said, I am not interested in the complexity of plot lines, holes in story or academy award quality performances.

The kids say 7, and that is good enough for me.
