Trivia

On Rosie's first day of school, she says to the French teacher, "Yes, I like French. It's a beautiful language. I speak six languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and Japanese. But English is my favorite, since I'm American. Is that when you learned, living in America, Mademoiselle Deveraux?" See more »

Goofs

When Carter gives Rosie a "chore" to count the contents of the bucket in the bait shop, it clearly says "WAX WORMS", yet when she opens the bucket, it is filled with earthworms, not wax worms. See more »

So typical Disney, it might have been animated
4 August 2009 | by Nick ASee all my reviews

Adults be warned: if you don't have kids, or if you don't enjoy yourself when they do, then you need not watch this movie. If you want to feel young again, go watch Star Trek or something.

This is Disney in its lightest form, without pain, just some bullying at most. This goes for the school environment as well as for the international political environment. Sure, Mr. Evil himself is about as scary as the lion Alex in Madagascar. He did a good job though, learning from cartoon characters, which I'm sure is a Disney trademark.

Also, don't focus on the international part. I speak both French and Spanish, and it hurts me to see them massacred so much. On the other hand, it makes me think I'd make excellent royalty. Apart from the caring part, that is.

The acting is not as bad as described by others. Actually, everybody seems to be having a good time, hoping it wears off to the audience. It works, sometimes. I liked the camera-work, the attention paid to dressing details, the displays of dignity and style. Also, when I said that it was a light movie, I also meant that there's no scenes at night. Vampires abstain.

Nah, it's not like this movie is advisory entertainment, but when they throw all these kid musicals on your plate, it's nice to have something else for dinner. But, again, be in the right mood, or with the right (very young) people.
