I'm giving this a 10 because in its genre it shines - it really is a great sports movie for kids! Lil Bow Wow is great, very natural, and very likable and the supporting cast all do their thing and make this inoffensive, entertaining, and we found lot of reasons to smile broadly.
With LOADS of basketball any kid that likes the game will be happy - of course, teams and players will change, but this is still really fun.
It reminded me of the old Disney films where magic, or experiments, gave some special powers and poof! sit back and watch time....
Absolutely recommended for kids and parents alike... we all loved this and would watch again.
Best thing I can say is that the kids just wanted to run out in the garden and play ball afterward, which is a pretty positive result!!!
