pathetic
19 August 2015 | by jsdana09See all my reviews

What a sad and pathetic attempt to re-start a classic. This movie was written by morons. Those in Hollywood who produced this crap should be run out of the business. They had some quality actors but even they couldn't save the script. It had none of the qualities of the original. Chevy Chase should have refused to be in this movie and put his stamp of approval on it. The casting of the two kids was awful and there was no chemistry at all. If you think watching a 10 year old kid dropping F-bombs in the presence of his parents is cute, and the constant reference to body parts is your kind of humor then we have a sad state of affairs in our culture. DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS TO SEE THIS MOVIE.
