Great story that helps people understand the importance of individuals
28 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great story that the entire family can sit down and enjoy together without the fear of offensive language, gratuitous sex or violence. The story is a little far fetched, but like most movies, if you will suspend your disbelief you'll find yourself rallying around the kids who refuse to take baths. It's fun to see a guest appearance by former Utah Jazz basketball coach Frank Layden in a "Larry King" type of role. The best part is the movie makes you think about how you treat others and that there are just some things, no matter what, that are wrong and others that are just right. Overall a great family flick that doesn't require a lot in the way of analyzation.
