Everybody is kind of annoying
1 March 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Melissa Morris (Emily Osment) wants to get the attention of her preoccupied best selling author father Neil (George Newbern) during their vacation. She is constantly talking to her father hero character Tripp Zoome (Jonathan Keltz). Then Neil gets kidnapped by his super fans Wheeze (David Henrie), Andre (Moises Arias), and Sheldon (Denzel Whitaker). Next she and her dad gets kidnapped by brothers Maurice (Phill Lewis) and Skunk (Charles Halford) who want Neil to fix their book. There is also hotel manager Merv (Jason Earles).

It's a cheap Disney production with their stars of the moment. There is a lot of complaining from the daughter Melissa. And her imaginary conversations are kind of annoying. In fact, everybody is annoying to some degree. The dad isn't that appealing either. After they reunite, the father daughter relationship could develop better. But nothing could really save this mess.
