Post toddler film delivers back seat quiet time time in your SUV., 26 August 2013
Author: Beginthebeguine from United States

Director Mark McNabb and writer Barry Cowan make direct to video children's movies. This particular type of film has one goal and that is to keep children interested. It has children slightly older than the target audience as the main characters and a goofy adult for comedy relief. The effects are unpolished as is most of the whole production because it does not have to be. It plays to an unsophisticated audience who still have imagination and wonder about everything. It has no other redeeming qualities, nor does it need them. If you want to keep your children occupied in the back seat of your SUV on a trip, or even at home this film will fill that need. Trying to dissect this film in adult terms is ridiculous.

The film adds some elements of science by making the adult a science teacher. When he speaks about science he is not goofy. I think it is a good idea to use such a character(non threatening adult) to perhaps interest the target audience in science and to make the main character(the older lead) interested in science is a plus. My only negative criticisms are that they use electricity as an experiment and I would be concerned that some young children might consider investigating electricity without adult supervision. It might also be a concern for atheists who do not want their children to think of ghosts or some type of mythological spirituality especially at such a young age. The ghosts are non threatening, however, and the old lady/witch is really just a nice old lady who misses her dead husband.
