An Average Film That Could've Been Worse
22 August 2008 | by jeffronthiSee all my reviews

This is a sentimental feel-good family flick that may not shines above some in its genre, but is kinda fun, nonetheless. This does not come packed with all the bells and whistles, but succeeds in its honesty. No offense to Fred Durst's direction, but I thought this film was going to be worse than what it turned out to be. I was slightly, not a lot mind you, surprised.

It is not the greatest movie I have seen, but I was able to sit through it without getting an attitude; not just for the sake of my kid sister.

For what it is, and the viewer market it is aiming at, I think it is fine for the kids.

5/10. Recommended for the children.
