Typical Disney
16 July 2003 | by (Cape Town) – See all my reviews

This is a typical Disney movie. It's a comedy, it's short (1h20) and you know who the good guys and the bad guys are - it's straight forward clean, family entertainment (think "Herbie" and more lately "The Princess Diaries").

The acting and jokes are reasonable but the plot less than convincing and can best be characterised as a non-drama version of Rocky (which the movie does not try to deny with obvious references throughout - especially the soundtrack).

Did I manage to watch it without zapping? Definitely not, but since there was nothing else on I basically sat through the whole thing.
