the kids really enjoyed this movie. bill and i found a few plot flaws that gave us the giggles but overall, we enjoyed the movie as well. i wish the language had been cleaner for the sake of the kids. a few "words" flew here and there; thankfully they seemed to go over the heads of the kids, but i wish they had been omitted altogether. i thought the plot seemed a little more focused on adults than kids, but my kids didn't seem to notice. i'm pretty sure they'll be asking to watch this again in the near future.
i received a copy of this movie from bender/helper impact for the purpose of this review. regardless, all thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own. if you use the link above to purchase this movie, i might receive a small benefit in return.
