Brandon Tyler Russell,
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.
