Paul Germain (who, at the time, had already left Nickelodeon to work for Disney, but served as the film's executive consultant) has mixed feelings for the film. While Germain doesn't exactly hate or disown the movie, he has a few problems he has with it: thinking that some moments, such as Stu giving the watch to Tommy didn't work, as the babies and adults weren't supposed to communicate, and that he was upset that now Dil was introduced at the beginning, as Tommy is supposed to be the youngest.
