This is an example of bad Hollywood gone unchecked. Don't settle for this type of movie. There are much more rewarding movies out there to watch than this Derek. Watch a Japanese Anime film, watch an old black and white romance. Try something different with children's's television time and don't settle for this unoriginal, uninspired reprocessed drivel.
The acting from all of actors in this movie is completely second rate. The directing, assuming there was one, would be considered workman like even for a daytime soap opera. The scenes are set, the actors walk into the scene, speak some lines, and then we repeat. The pacing is awful. I couldn't believe just how bad this movie is. My kids when asked, said, " It was good", but I believe that was just out of politeness. They never laughed or cheered or acted frightened during the entire movie. That's the best way to sum up this movie; It's just a waste of time.
