Goofs

When Odd and Stormy are riding the scooter after leaving Viola's kids, they ride past a car dealership. All of the signs at the dealership (including the sign out front) are backwards, except for the large "Quality" sign in the middle. The film was reversed to change their direction of travel, but only one sign was fixed. See more »

A very Odd movie
19 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I will start with a recommendation: "go watch it". This movie is definitely worth seeing. I did not red the book , and this movie truly surprised me. The movie unfolds very dynamically. It is not a slow paced movie for sure. The story is also very interesting containing just enough elements to surprise and entertain at the same time. The ending is also done very nicely. The effects are not the best ever seen , but sufficient. The acting was also very good. I admit some of the characters felt a bit dull , not really believable. In a nutshell , go watch it and be amazed how good a movie can turn out even if you never heard of it.
