Good movie, but not the best they could do.
24 November 1998 | by RunningFromSatanSee all my reviews

This movie wasn't really bad, but it wasn't really good, either. Many parents who take their children to see this movie will be bored out of their minds! I mean I'm not saying this is the worst movie of all time, but I think whoever the writers were could do A LOT better because the series is fantastic. There was some LOL humor (i.e. the babies in the newborn room singing that song) and when Charlotte says "If born under Venus, look for a--" and gets cut off by her cellular phone. On a scale of 1-10, I rated it a 7. I will still watch the series, but I wouldn't go to see it again.
