This family comedy is about, Zack, an 8-year old American boy who is separated from his 18-year old sister, as they arrive in Paris for a family vacation. Seth, and friends track Zack down. Written by
This is typically formulaic kids' fare. The boy and his sister arrive in Paris, the boy gets lost, everyone searches for him, the boy ends up in danger, the boy catches the bad guys and saves the day and the family is reunited. It seems like a "Home Alone in Paris" for television. Parents will love the music and the sights in Paris! Younger kids will like the boy, Zac, well-played by Christopher Plumley, who uses his wits rather than high-tech weapons and special effects. Older kids will especially like the teens:talented Lindsay Felton as the boy's scared older sister, ultracool John Hooper as the would-be boyfriend, effervescent Tara Lipinski as the sister's helpful friend, and comical Jason Padgett as her hapless boyfriend in tow. And everyone will love that nutty Jon Cryer as Zac's " stern wannabe" teacher because we all had a teacher like that at one time or another. A very nice little movie.
