When Lloyd's father Max tells him 4-1-1, Lloyd mentions Disney Channel. Jason Dolley (Llyod) was one of the main cast members in Disney Channel's Good Luck Charlie (2010). See more »


This is just one example of how poorly this film was made. The continuity is totally missing starting with the scene where mom is lying on the couch looking at Gay Scholarship results on her phone. Her hair is red, has no brightly-colored streaks in it, and she's wearing a blue t-shirt with large colored hearts on it. Her nail polish is black. In the next few frames, a close-up of the phone screen with the search results, her nails are pink, and the background shows some sort of patterned fabric that isn't in the wide shot. The next scene has her hurrying to her son's room, where her hair is back to brown with brightly-colored streaks, she's wearing a plaid, button-up shirt, and her nails are either polish-free or she's wearing clear polish.

Minor continuity glitches are amusing. These are so glaring as to make the movie more difficult to watch. Knowing that the creators couldn't have cared less, why should I care about this film?

Amateur hour
25 June 2015 | by kidsnpuppiesSee all my reviews

Nearly everything about this movie looks like it was made by 2nd graders.

Starting with the obvious, the script is incoherent, unoriginal, unfunny and vacuous.

The person who directed this clearly was grasping at straws, and to allow the lead character to act so way over-the-top showed very little skill of the craft.

The acting by everyone (except the father) was a joke. It looked like bad dinner theater acting.

The sound was not good and uneven. Some parts of the film were inaudible and the dialogue lost. How do you let that happen (unless, of course you're a 2nd grader)?

I'm assuming this film was shot for 40-50k by film students in an attempt to raise money to try and make something bigger. However, I highly doubt this effort by those involved will lead to anything other than than an unemployment check or a job offer at Dunkin Donuts serving up flavors of the day.

THIS is what you call AMATEUR HOUR.
