Positive—I watched this movie the other day with my 9 year old daughter and 11 year old son. I thought it was an excellent movie. It might be offensive to children younger than 5, because it had some inappropriate words. It had nothing offensive to Christ.
My Ratings: Good / 4½

Positive—While this move is not wholesome, there was a solid family theme to it.

Negative—I regretted watching this with my 6 year old son. (There were not a lot of reviews on this site to make a proper judgment) There were a lot of emotionally spoken rude words by children. A child pees in an indoor planter, a child directly punches an adult in his privates, and on and on—it all looks fun and appealing to children. Now there is a message at the end, but it certainly isn’t worth all the garbage and ideas being planted in your child’s mind to reach it!! (The next day my 6 yr old even used a new word from this movie.) There seems to be maybe one—two good family movies out per month now a days. One such one was “Game Plan,” with a great message at the end! Hope this helps you make your choice.

Negative—My wife and I watched this movie with our two kids (ages 10 and 7) and we found it to be not appropriate for family viewing. Much of the attempted humor seemed vulgar and mean spirited. There were many instances in the movie of rude language and rude behavior by kids; some of which was directed towards adults. There was also quite a bit of bodily “humor” such as belching and passing gas. We know that a lot of kids find this kind of thing funny, and we can certainly tolerate a little of this in a kids movie. However, there was a scene with projectile vomiting that was a bit much and in very poor taste; and in another scene it is clearly implied that a kid urinates into a balloon to make a “water” balloon and then we see him break the balloon over another kids head. This is supposed to be funny? We thought that scene especially was way out of line for a family movie. I agree with the other viewer that yes, the movie tries to work in a message at the end affirming the importance of family, but all of the inappropriate garbage that you have to cringe through to get to that point far outweighs any veiled attempt at virtue and makes the movie not at all worth it. I do not recommend this movie to families who are followers of Jesus.
