The acting is Truly terrible
19 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this would be a good, funny kids movie for the family but it turned out to be the biggest bunch of crap I have ever seen.

Seriously, the writing, story, the acting, the filming and even the music are worse than porn levels of terrible.

It isn't even good-bad like Tremors 3, it is just poorly put together and executed. It is a case study in failed film making.

The only thing even remotely interesting is the weird sexual tension between the teens... and the dog and the mother. The long scene of the mother scratching her boyfriend that turned into a dog with the Sesame Street-like music in the background is just fetish material.

If you doubt this, go check it out on net-flix.
