a sweet, if odd movie
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a oddity of a sweet family movie. Yes it's rated R for some suggestive language and of course, kidnapping, and mild drug use. 16-year old Emily holds her parents capture at home the weekend of her state jumping finals because she wants them to remember how they used to be a loving family. The moral is clear and she makes her point. I would watch this with a family (kids age 12+). Kristen Chenowith, Matthew Modine co-star, but it's really the kids who shine here, most notably the star, Oleysa Rulin, and actors who portray her siblings: Joey King, Robbie Tucker, and Eddie Hassle It's a sweet and strange movie.
