Slightly amusing but the first 2 was better
6 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know but I felt this one is the worst one out of the three but it's watchable. Watching this movie is like watching some crazy families trying to act normal. And that is where most of the humor comes from, watching crazy people trying to act normal. This time around it's the story centers around trust values and admitting to mistakes instead of running away from it. And it goes in a decent direction where the whole family can watch and be safe with and also get a few chuckles out of. It's basically a really kid friendly movie. Almost like those teenage Disney kids shows. Except it's in movie form. The movie however didn't seem all well put together although it does have moments where kids can get some laughs out of. It's a decent family movie but just watching as an adult, it can be below mediocre.

5/10
