Did You Know?


According to Kelly's Blatz in his coverage interview for the Canadian Press, (and in contrast to some popular belief) the precocious aging/transformation of Tyler Burns was not originally scripted, nor was it faked. Instead, it was written into the film when shooting in 2007 halted in order for Blatz to continue work on Aaron Stone. Filming resumed a year later, and by then Joey Pollari had already gone through a few mature changes. Therefore, his character's so called "puberty" was in fact real and it may be evident that the film was shot in chronological sequence. See more »

Cheesy Acting and Empty Storyline
4 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie based on a positive review on this site. What a mistake that was.

The cheesy acting is layered thick on top of an empty storyline, which is why I gave this movie 3 out of 10.

The main characters seem to have no purpose whatsoever. They just happen to be "there" and we are forced to watch their uninteresting "adventures" with an alien object they discover by mistake.

I still don't know what direction the movie was supposed to take. It seems like the director couldn't decide between finding an alien object or teenagers chasing girlfriends. It ended up being a sloppy mix of the two.

Furthermore, the pacing is horrible the movie starts out fast and then dulls down to the point where you don't even feel like watching it anymore.

Disney should look into how Pixar is making movies, because The Incredibles was just about 100 times better than this awful monstrosity.
