My 7 year old daughter and I had some laughs
7 February 2003 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Regardless of its faults, my 7 year old daughter and I had fun and enjoyed the movie, which is what counts. Obviously, the movie is not intended to be a masterpiece or believable, but children will find it very funny and adults may enjoy it too.
