This is the second time director Raja Gosnell and composer Nick Glennie-Smith worked together. Their first collaboration was Gosnell's directorial debut Home Alone 3 (1997) where Glennie-Smith wrote the score. However this time Glennie-Smith is only the orchestra conductor and not the composer. The composer this time is instead Heitor Pereira. See more »

Should be MANDATORY to actually see the movie before voting!
I agree with some of the previous reviewers - how can you rate a movie without even seeing it?!? Well, guess that gives us the right to rate THEM without even knowing them! I give those people a 1.5.
This is a KID'S movie and to rate it a 2 is ridiculous. It's not the best movie but it sure is much better than A LOT of recent kid's/animated films. My kids, 4 & 5, loved this movie and that's really my biggest requirement. There are many others where they were bored and wanted to leave in less than 30 minutes.
To the people voting it so low (especially ones who vote without viewing) - GET A LIFE!
