Too dumb even for kids.
28 March 2010 | by (Kingsport, TN) – See all my reviews

I don't know why so many family films have to be so stupid. They don't have to be, this could have been a really fun movie, but it misses nearly every opportunity it had. This is a silly mess, that is neither funny or entertaining. The cast isn't particularly good, Francesca Scorsone is downright awful. The special effects are okay, the period detail is a joke, like the costumes. The score is poor and seems to belong to a different movie entirely. Bad art direction and the sloppy editing certainly don't help. I think filmmakers should give kids a little more credit that giving them inferior movies like this. There are other similar movies that were done much better.
