great movie
18 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is overall very cute and very unique. Yes, i admit the special effects are not anything special...but that just adds to comedy. The acting is actually very good, especially Bug Hall, who is a really good actor. There are many hilarious lines in this film that just cracked me up. It is great movie to watch with your family, and it is very entertaining. I would certainly recommend this for families everywhere. This film even has jokes thrown in for the parents, and teaches a very good lesson, which is portrayed beautifully. This is a truly unique movie that keeps you at the edge of your seat all the way. A++
