"Good Luck Charlie: The Movie" is definitely not the worst kind of family comedy, though I have to admit I personally prefer the show to this. Still, it makes a great addition to the series as a little Christmas movie. I didn't plan to catch this in the first place. Then I decided I might as well watch this after I tuned to the Disney Channel looking for some fun after some serious work.
First of all, the story is a mix of unoriginal ideas. It wasn't boring. Not at all. Just unoriginal. A vehicle going downhill with a broken brake and some typical war games, these all sound familiar. So you should not expect anything fresh or special, but it is still fun for me. There aren't exactly any particular moments or scenes that I find dull or highly intriguing, but trust me, it is not a mess. The story fits together and is presented well.
Some scenes near the end of the movies are good, and I liked the ending too. And yes, there was the surprise which I am not going to ruin here. But I do hope that Disney will maintain the consistency and keep that "surprise" valid for upcoming episodes on the show.
I guess there is not a single reason for me to say this is a bad movie, but it really could've been much better, so I think I will put this in the middle of the scale. This is by no means a poor family comedy, considering there are "better" choices out there. If you're afraid of replaying awful memories of this year's little Miss Judy Moody, don't worry. This is a lot, a lot and a lot less disturbing.
