Funny enough!!
Just three quick questions:

1. Can you imagine someone saying that Paul Giamatti is a BAD actor? 2. How old do you have to be to completely lose sight of the fact that movies for kids (you know, the kind starring Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes) are not the same as the movies that you might like? 3. Is there any reason to wonder why some reviewers are unemployed?

The kids are cute, the scenarios are unlikely at best, and that's what makes them funny (c'mon...the bad guy sleeps with a monkey doll!) and the story makes sense within the world it creates. It's not Gone With the Wind, The Godfather (I OR II!), no. But, it's "probably" not supposed to be either. It's fun enough, even if some of the kids out there don't get it. Trust me...
