don't rent this!!
16 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't LET THE CUTE DOGGIE ON THE CASE FOOL YOU!!! Terrible movie, awful acting, LAME!!! Don't insult your children by mistakenly thinking this is entertaining. The set is amateur,audio and soundtrack seem like an afterthought, and none of the actors are appealing.The plot of kids looking for gold has been done(goonies).The sub plot of pre-adolescent first kiss, crush, is again, overdone. It tried to be cute, but sorry, the child actors are not good enough to pull it off. We can't even begin to like the characters because the poor acting. I rented this through redbox, and it was not even worth the $1. Even the older actors, who should be 'seasoned', are a joke. Steve Guttenberg as a crotchety scoundrel!? He can't do it.His limp and attempt at tough-guy speech are laughable. Save your time and money, and poke needles in your eyes for 1.5 hours, it will be less painful.
