It's okay if you're nine, but if you're ten, it may be too lame for you to stomach.
Where does one begin? Aside from the child lead Zach, and what appears to be the same dog from Dr. Doolittle (probably isn't), Michael Winslow, and an appearance by Angie (Brazilian wannabe Britney Spears), this movie is pretty ambiguous.
Craig Ferguson is great in a cheeky, idiotic, and totally inane kind of way. His performance is nothing you don't see on his stage act on the Late, Late Show every week night. I love Craig's performance herein, although he IS somewhat of an acquired taste, and this movie does stink up the place.
Sammy Kahn (Zach) hasn't been credited with anything since 2006. I can only hope he went on to find a good life. He would be 17 at the time of this writing. His performance is rather good, considering the dialog is written as tritely as the worst of the worst soap opera.
I didn't mind this as much as I thought I would, but it's really quite bad, overall. It's okay if you're nine, but if you're ten, it may be too lame for you to stomach.
LOVE Zach's t-shirts though!!
It rates a 4.0/10 from...
