This was the first film to be co-produced by Paramount and MGM. The original 1968 film was produced by Desliu Productions, which merged with Paramount the year before, so the film's copyright was renewed by Paramount. However, United Artists (owned by MGM since 1981) has retained full distribution rights to the 1968 film to this day (UA once owned the rights to Paramount's "Popeye" cartoons, and a few early Paramount sound features that had been sold to Warner Bros. for remakes). Columbia (which collaborated with Paramount on another 2005 remake, "The Longest Yard") became involved once its parent company, Sony, purchased a stake in MGM. See more »

This movie was excellent, it one of very few family movies that are suitable for all ages. Many people say they didn't like it, and gave it bad ratings probably because, there's no sexual humor or sex scenes. These days, If there's sex in a movie, then that makes it interesting and good. Hardly anyone understands that family movies are for families, they're not meant to be nasty to watch, it should be enjoyable for everyone. Movies can be great without that garbage. The humor was good and you can really feel the compassion in this movie. Its great for kids. I loved the way things happened, like the physical humor and the kid actors/actresses were so adorable. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fight over a boy that the two older girls had. I think it was stupid and unnecessary. Drake Bell did a really good job on his part. He was witty and full of drama with the different situations throughout the movie. Everyone did a great job. I give it a 8 out of 10.
