Tons of Pre-Presentation Hype Doesn't Pan Out
18 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After seeing several months of promotions for this movie on The Disney Channel with the kids, I must say I found this to be one of the worst Disney movies ever. I would describe it as a bizarre combination of Misery and the campy Batman series of the late 1960's.

I have to admit to actually enjoying some of the movies produced for this TV Channel, but this one I was really disappointed in, considering Disney's build-up to the premier. I was hoping to see a better performance from Emily Osment, as I think she has great potential.

There's lot's of colorful flying "splooge" that Disney must assume kids (still) like these days, even though it's been done ad nauseam, and the ending is completely ludicrous.

But, like others have said, you can't expect too much from Disney.
