Kids loved it...but they can overlook brutal acting
22 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Movie is fun for younger kids. Lots of adventure and mystery. Parents typically end up watching movies with the kids and this one stood out as one of the worst acting performances from most of the characters that we've ever seen. Luckily the kids see past this but I can't help but think the movie would have been so much better if they used real actors. Poor Luke Perry...how his star has diminished. It's almost funny to see him try and do an accent. I don't even think this would warrant being considered a made for TV flick as it's so low budget. Still can't believe we pay for this garbage acting but as long as the kids like it, can't complain too much. Would think kids over 10 would be interested though...a little to simple a story.
