Lame at first but gets better towards the end
8 March 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a teenage girl whose father is the creator of the popular Trip Zoome man.

"Dadknapped" is a squeaky clean movie for children and teenagers. The script is rather lame at first, especially the annoyingly juvenile and irresponsible father who keeps immersing himself in a fantasy world. No wonder his daughter is so fed up with him! Towards the second half of the movie, when the elements for adults come in, it gets substantially better. Though the nonsense persists, the emotional subplot really strikes a chord with the viewers, because the bond between Mr Morris and Melissa is so real.

Overall, the plot and the humour is silly and lame, but because of this "Dadknapped" is fun to watch.
