What are you doing?
[Sam shows Mia his unibrow]
I need your help. Please.
Oh my god, Sam, what have you done!
Please don't laugh. I'm a freak.
I think I've got something.
[Mia pulls out tweezers]
No! No way.
You want help or not?
[Sam reluctantly agrees and Mia begins to pluck his eyebrow]
I'll be done if anyone saw me like this! My fans can't ever know about it.

There is nothing really wrong with the Nowhere Boys movie, but unfortunately there is nothing really right with it either. It's biggest downfall is that it's just plain boring.
The concepts are okay, and I think there was almost enough there to work with, but it feels like the first draft of the script went to production. It needed to be developed and refined to make this movie a worthy addition to the story of Felix, Sam, Jake and Andy.
Though the stakes are high, the intensity isn't there, and we find ourselves not really caring if the boys win or lose.
It's such a shame because the show was so original and creative, with dynamic characters that we truly cared about and could relate to.
Generously, I'm giving it a 6 because of my fondness for the show and because the principal cast all returned.
