Having previously worked on a number of family films, director Brian Levant has developed various methods of working with very young actors. But most of his techniques didn't apply to then five year old actress Alina Foley, who played Nora, the youngest of the three siblings. Levant said: "I've worked with a lot of little kids and it's like pulling teeth. With Alina you just turn the camera and let her go, because you don't know what's going to happen with her! She is funny and different and it shows up on screen." See more »

Wow, people need to get a grip when they review a kids film! Sure the premise has been used before & sure the bad guys are cheesy. They are supposed to be.
This movie has OK action, corny dialogue, and an absolutely wonderful message. Not every movie has to win awards to be great. Some movies are simply great because you get to spend time with your kids & the flick has a redeeming message.
This movie has no sex, no language, and merely comedic violence. What a refreshing idea! I loved that my 13 year old boy & 10 year old daughter enjoyed it & both got the message that family is who loves you not whose blood runs in you.
I would highly recommend this movie to anyone with children or to anyone who is sick of Hollywood "morals" being forced down our throats. A very family friendly movie.
Come with a good attitude. Enjoy the popcorn & a coke. Watch a decent flick & enjoy time with your family.
