Film about why never to data a parent.
5 April 2006 | by benfranklin100See all my reviews

Not a horrible film, but no real moments of genius either. Sickeningly domestic, saccharine Hollywood puppet-show that might be entertaining to goody-two-shooed fluoride-poisoned Homonis-Domesticus "Outraged Fathers" and "Mad-Mothers" but, to the rest of us, will reek of suburban-ticket-sale-pandering.

Still, the script was decent, and the acting was fairly solid. It was better than most movies of it's kind and I must shamefully confess to having laughed a few times. Overall, it was a good movie with a good script and good actors; it's just a shame it was centered about such pedestrian and urbane material.
