Goofs

When the gang is riding the giant bees, Sean identifies the birds chasing them as "white-throated needletails," which is a species of swift. On the contrary, the birds featured appear to be white-fronted bee-eaters, which are in no way related to or resembling needletails. See more »

An actual viewer opinion - Not even kids worthy.
23 May 2012 | by sk_razorSee all my reviews

I cant spoil the story as there is barely any to find. The only one/s who truly earned any coin in this movie are the people who did the trailer, because they managed to put together a clip from the none existent content of the film. Suffice to say, I can bet you the 80 million dollars to that took to make this film that first graders and/or some random drunken people in a bar can come with a better screen play. Its so bad that you can see everyone of the actors in the film can not believe they are actually going through with this scene after scene. Its so excessively dull that I wouldn't even want my children to see it. The ONLY thing you can do to make this film bare-able is to turn of the audio and watch it as a mute film. Anything you could imagine about the dialog would be better. I'm only giving it a 3 because believe it or not I've seen worse ( : And CGI? Maybe we could have enjoyed the CGI if it wasn't crushingly burdened with carrying the dumbest dialog I've seen in years. I'm only wasting my key taps on this "film" on the off chance that this will save someone the waste of time.
