...is to be more convincing on-screen, and less of an obnoxious brat
25 December 2009 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

Seriously, that spoiled kid with poor delivery was the only truly irritating thing to this otherwise decent enough, if clichéd piece of predictable pap. Since many Western families are going to watch a flick like this around Christmas, his attitude and (lack of memorable) presence is simply going to make it less enjoyable. Apart from him, the acting is OK. The plot may have an aspect or two that are new(with that said, I haven't watched any of the other movies with the same title, so maybe it doesn't), but you know exactly what will happen almost before the first frames of this. Basically, the child wants a new dad, and submits a video saying so, to a toy company that is ripping off the concept of the Make a Wish Foundation to increase profits. So mother dear does what people with a sense of ethics refer to as prostituting herself, agreeing to go on dates on the condition that the company gives money to her charity, named after her deceased husband. It's completely black and white, and everyone who is "good" has all the PC opinions. The characters tend to be pretty paper-thin. While this isn't terribly funny, I'm not sure it's trying for it all that often. And it doesn't particularly do any "silly" or cartoony stuff to get laughs from five-year-olds, so that's a point in its favor. The morals are wholesome, and there's essentially nothing offensive(to its intended audience) in this. I recommend this to those who belong in aforementioned group. 6/10
