I'm not sure if I can go through with this, Cadbury.
Just remember these words, Master Richie - - "You have the power of your father inside you."
You mean, like, "Trust the force, Luke"?

This is definitely teen fare, but it's very entertaining which means adults would get a lot of laughs out of it. As with any comedy, some of the stuff is really stupid and some of it is really funny. Along the way, you get some of modern Hollywood's secular plugs and a few swear words that you wouldn't want your little ones to hear, but overall, I have little to criticize with this one.
There were a number of sight gags, things that made me laugh out loud, such as dollar signs instead of spots on the dog, the dress-ware of the little rich kid (Macauley Culkin), the eccentric characters - good and bad guys - are all fun to watch.
I thought Jonathan Hyde, as the butler, stole the show.
