Hey, I can't believe we actually made it off the island!
[they look at each other]
[whispering into Sean's ear]
Pop your pecs.
[turns to face Hank, whispering back angrily]
I'm not gonna pop my pecs.
Now's the perfect time to pop your pecs. She's gonna love it, believe me. You...
I'm not gonna pop my pecs!
Do it, do it...
No, I'm not gonna pop my pecs!
She would love it, believe me!

I was already less than impressed by the trailer, and when I saw the film my suspicions about the stale plot and characters where confirmed in full.
We begin with the routinely angsty teenage boy with the novel hobby, his conventionally careworn mother and his try-hard stepfather who "Just wants to be friends." Along the way we encounter many overused plot points, gags and characters.
There's the eccentric old man with a taste for cheesy catchphrases, the chubby simpleton who's only role is to inject some half rate comedy, the "breathtaking" jungle island full of dangerous beasts and beautiful creatures, and the pretty girl with the very low cut tank top who will at some point be put in mortal peril in order for the afore mentioned angsty teenage boy to prove himself worthy in the art of rescuing the damsel.
The plot was recycled, the acting was OK at best, and the dialogue had me rolling my eyes and sighing several times. The only redeeming factor was the special effects, and even then they were nothing I hadn't seen before.
Quite frankly, The film is, in my opinion, a film for children who don't pay mind to anything but the pretty colours and cool stunts. Nothing more.
