The rest can only have been added here by a cubicle farm of movie studio marketing drones, who really earned their pay trying to think of good things to say about this sad, career-damaging waste of time.
Josh Peck is one of the all-time worst casting calls, and should become a cautionary tale amongst casting agents.
Agent 1: 'What do you think of this guy for the main character?'
Agent 2: 'Are you trying to 'Josh Peck' this film?'
He looks about 20 years older than his older brother, and even in the most dramatic scenes - has a mopey expression on his face that makes you want to slap him. All I can imagine is that he helped fund the film, because there's no other logical reason for him playing this part.
I would have liked to be in the screening room when they showed this to the studio head. There was probably a long silence when the curtain fell, as half a dozen people were fired by text.
