When Swindell and Griffin (disguised as Mr. Lefevre) talk about the Cybertor toy while getting a massage, it's obvious that Griffin is played by a completely different person (not Noah Crawford) for the majority of the scene. See more »

You can only expect so much from a Nick movie!
25 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First and foremost, this is a NICKELODEON TV MOVIE. If you are expecting an Oscar winning performance or storyline, some reevaluation of your life should be done. Keeping that in mind, this movie is probably one of the best kid's made for TV films I've seen in a long time. Although, it wasn't laugh out loud funny, it definitely kept my attention through out the entire 120 minutes. The story was VERY well done. All of the characters were quirky and like able. And the character development in a few of the characters (Darren and Amanda) were really cute(for lack of better words). I didn't personally read the book, but the changes should be no surprise to anyone.

All in all, this movie was really good. Something the kids can watch with adults, but without the latter dying of boredom. I definitely recommend it for those who aren't ridiculously and unnecessarily critical.
