Better than average DCOM
17 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DC had been promoting this movie for a long time. Disney movies are often hit or miss and if you are not an eleven year old girl they often are not enjoyable. However, I thought this movie was very good for TV.

The plot was generally believable. The two main characters were well acted and had a great chemistry. The movie was well written and the plot was more solid than most kid movies. Also the villain was believable as a real criminal. The banter between the kid and cop actually was funny and kept me watching a rather formulaic cop/kid movie.

The movie should have ended about five minutes sooner than it did, but it had less of the sappiness that most DCOMs have. The movie reminded me more of the old, old Disney movies from the 60's and 70's such as That Darn Cat, which I think it is a good thing.

Hence, if nothing better is on I would recommend it for watching one of the five hundred times they play it in the next year.
