This Is Fun For Adults, Too!
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very pleasant surprise; a very good comedy filled with a lot of laughs and - more surprise - not much raunch and profanity. Wow, that's unusual for today. Some people say this was strictly made for kids. Well, I am hardly a kid and I loved it.

All the characters in here are just that: characters from goofy David Arquette's "Gordon"- to the cute kid, Angus T. Jones ("James" - to big Michael Clarke Duncan ("Murdoch") - to pretty Leslie Bibb ("Stephanie")

  • to Joe Viterelli ("Gino") - to Anthony Anderson ("Bennie") - to Paul


Sorvino ("Sonny Talia"). Yeah, the last guy is the only one with a last name. I especially liked Viterelli and Duncan.

The film gets too silly in one spot - at the store, where the slapstick goes on way too long, but otherwise this is a funny movie. As the cliché goes, fun for all ages, but let me add.....not just the kids.
