But the kids liked it. The film makes feeble attempts to include adults in some of the gags, but they just don't work. My kids wanted to see it, I figured it would suck and it did. Didn't feel too bad paying discounted matinee prices, but I can't imagine any adult walking out of this one with anything positive to say.
This is the back shelf treasure that everyone hopes for when browsing the not-so-recent releases at the video store. Pay attention to the other reviews posted here - they're not kidding. This is a very well made film on every level. Great script, acting is standout, direction is thoughtful and involved. Not for kids.
