Artie and Diane agree to look after their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents need to leave town for work. Problems arise when the kids' 21st-century behavior collides with Artie and Diane's old-school methods.
Doubting Thomas is the story of a twelve year old boy known for telling tall tales who overhears a plot to kidnap the President's daughter. When he goes public with his story, no one believes him, and he is forced to save her on his own.
I won't spoil anything but watch for some good gags that had the kids laughing. The film is predictable and adult performances were wooden in the beginning but seem to fall into place as the story progresses. Trenton Rogers is believable and sympathetic and of course Rico Rodriguez is great. For that the film accomplished its goal and found its audience - kids. There is a little bit of Alexander and the No Good Terrible Very Bad Day, Our Gang, and a lot of Harry Chapin's "Cats in the Cradle" which is not so subtly referenced, tossing the ball and all. Films like this usually have lessons for the kids but this one has a message for the parents too.
