Formulaic Fun!
22 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Keeping in mind that this is a Disney Channel Original Movie, and was not intended as Oscar material, I found this movie very enjoyable.

The plot was actually fairly interesting, several clever twists made it one of the more refreshing made-for-TV, "family" films that I've seen. Aside from the plot, I found the acting in this film better than most of its genre. Although occasionally slapstick, particularly toward the end (what can you expect, it is a DCOM), the acting was generally believable in a crazy/fun sort of way. There was great chemistry between some of the characters as well. I really liked the performances by Osment, Henrie, and Arias.

My least favorite part of this movie was probably just before the end (during the "climax") when the action moved from "expectedly because it's Disney Channel slapstick" to "tortuously unbelievably slapstick." Thankfully, it only lasted a few minutes.

If you're a cynic or a movie critic you'll probably hate this movie. However, if you're looking for a fun, clean, family-friendly movie that teaches some good lessons without being too heavy-handed, and doesn't completely insult your intelligence, you might just enjoy "Dadnapped."
