I can't believe they got so many "actors" to take money to play such moronic characters, the worst being the apartment manager, Ms. Willinger (Janet Ulrich Brooks), obscenely overacted. This could have been a decent movie if the writers and director would not have spent so much effort in distracting the viewers with stupidity. When will the makers of so-called "family" movies realize that they can't tug at the heart at the same time they crap on your brain! That said, I should also say that the little girl, Rylie Behr, was cute in her role as long as it was just her, Dad and the dog in the scene. She was one of the few people in this movie given a sane character to play. Hope she finds something more worthy of her talents in the future.
