Goofs

When the girls arrive at the bowling alley Ed says to Carter that he would get her shoes he said "5 1/5 coming up" but when they return the shoes the camera gets close to the real size on the shoe and it says size 7/8. Therefore Selena Gomez wears a size 7 or 8 shoe, not a 5 1/5. See more »

Predictable, but Okay ..
7 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Witness Protection Program is the first Disney film I watched for 2009. Like many other Disney films, this is educational, entertaining, albeit highly predictable. No points in figuring out the ending, but it's still nice to watch the entire film, to see how the film progress.

I am not giving any plots away, because doing that, then you wouldn't have to watch the film altogether.

The film is educational. It deals about father-daughter relationship, about growing up, and about how perception makes people treat others differently.

Teens, especially are quick to judge a person simply based on how, say, a person dresses, or how a person talks. Wear a thick glasses people may think that he/she is geeky/nerd. Have a stud in the nose, and one quickly judge that he/she is a cousin/niece of the cow family.

But it is not that simple. It is not clear cut, black-and-white thing, after all. No one can judge a person without knowing the other person first.

And this film deals with exactly just that. About how a princess is immediately perceived as being shallow, and does not know how to do chores. It teaches us that it doesn't matter who we are, what color our skin are, what language we speak, what matters is what's inside.

Enough typing. Bring your pre-teens to watch this film, and impart onto them that they should not judge quickly their friends, to take the time to know others better before making their judgment.

Should have given this film an 8, but I think it deserves only a 7 because of the highly predictable ending.
