It was dad-tackler!, 3 February 2013
Author: Caitlin McNair from Canada

Very very very interesting. Father gets dad-napped, kids chase after the wannabe cops around town in order to save the girl.

I found halfway through the movie that "dad-napped" is a play-on word. Cause "kid-napped" would imply that kids get kid-napped...but in the case of this film, one of the paternal fathers of one of the stars (Emily O.) is dad-napped.

The movie however was poorly filmed, it reminded me of a short tube clip but what more can you expect from a low budget Disney movie? I felt the 'family' connection. They should have come up with a song.

This film remind me of a beautiful mind, in that is showed a real portrayal of a person with schizophrenia. Can somebody say Oscars? (winky face) I laughed, I cried, I even ate my heart.
