really good family movie

The Lawrence Brothers are probably the best comic actors around. They work so well together and they they are genuine is what makes the movie work. The plot is outlandish, but the Lawrence Brothers make it work well. They take a crazy story and make it believable. Disney should release this film on video and DVD.
