This family film is willing to tackle important issues such as burgeoning sexuality, alcoholism and a troubled home life but does so in a bland and unconvincing story.
While ninety percent of the film is good for the family, there is ten percent that I will caution parents on.
Film crumbles when the oppressive frowns are released, turning an amiable diversion into a chore to finish, due in great part to the sheer weight of the distress. The movie never fully recovers from the sour detour.
The happy Hardy Boys action takes an uncomfortable back seat to low-rent melodrama.
The story mechanics don't always work-the film vacillates between feeling heartfelt and clumsy.
A proud throwback to '70s family melodramas, such as Where the Red Fern Grows, Plumm seems slow, melodramatic and contrived when compared to contemporary movies.
