Surprisingly funny

  • Nov 6, 2010
is a kid's movie, but it turns out to be a surprisingly funny one - far more so than some of the "adult" comedy that's come out in recent years. This movie has several bizarre plot twists, with Frankie Muniz and Amanda Bynes playing pranks on a big-shot Hollywood producer - essentially, it's like a modern Home Alone. I found myself laughing heartily at seeing a great actor like Paul Giamatti play the role of a manic, slightly insane Hollywood producer - and doing so convincingly. The film also has a great role for Jaleel White, a.k.a. Steve Urkel from Family Matters: The Complete First Season, who frequently references his prior incarnation. My only disappointment is that the film doesn't make better use of Amanda Bynes, whom I think is a terrific comedic actress. Kids will love the movie and adults will get a few good laughs. Recommended for kids of all ages.
