User Reviews

It's a dumb kids movie, and it's great.
14 March 2021 | by jrichar8-393-865922See all my reviews

I'm laughing at everybody upset about the contrived plot and dumb jokes. It's a family movie, intended to be silly, not something competing for a Palme d'Ore. Maybe if you're watching a Netflix movie where the premise is parents have to say yes to everything their preteen kids want to do you should dial back your expectations about the plot? Did you watch Kindergarten Cop and get upset that Ahnold didn't have a teaching certificate? It's stupid, it's fun, get together with your kids and enjoy it.
