Most of the jokes can be spotted a mile away.

Another so-called 'family film' that will only have appeal to a certain segment of the household unit.

Greenwich Village Gazette

The first thing to remember is that this is a fantasy. The second is that this is made for the pre-teen market and this type of thing is just their cup of tea.

Collapses after 30 minutes into a slap-happy series of adolescent violence.

This is one of the rarest kinds of films: a family-oriented non-Disney film that is actually funny without hitting below the belt.

Joe Leydon

Written, directed and acted in a style that recalls the worst live-action, Saturday-morning TV comedies of the 1970s.

A good, solid family film. Youngsters should find it hilarious and adults should be suitably amused.

[A]n utterly charming and hilarious film that reminded me of the best of the Disney comedies from the 60s.

Home Alone goes Hollywood, a funny premise until the kids start pulling off stunts not even Steven Spielberg would know how to do. Besides, real movie producers aren't this nice.

| Original Score: C+

Jam! Movies

A movie smallfry ages 6 to 10 think is terrific, and at the same time a movie that won't cause the accompanying parents to become homicidal.

| Original Score: 4/5

February 10, 2002
Dustin Putman

No earth-shattering accomplishment, but an unusually smart movie that the whole family can go to without a single person getting bored or talked down to.

An infinitely wittier version of the Home Alone formula.

Strives for mediocrity and unfortunately succeeds in reaching that less-than-lofty goal.

A pretty decent kid-pleasing, tolerable-to-adults lark of a movie.

So much better than this sort of thing usually is that it counts as a big fat surprise.

Unless you're part of the Nickelodeon Nation, the cold, hard truth is you're better off dropping your 'tween at the multiplex and spending that hour and a half doing something more worthwhile.

A children's movie that's almost worth seeing even when not accompanied by a child.

Never pushes its pranks far enough to reach laugh-out-loud success and never gives its actors enough comedic support.
