Audience Reviews for The Day My Parents Ran Away

Review in a nutshell:
Two parents that don't know how to set limits for their teenage son. They quickly get fed up and abandon him. He parties but soon tires of it and tries to find them. When he does, they don't want to return.

It had the potential to be very funny (Like 'Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead) but falls short. Very short. Don't waste your time watching this TERRIBLE movie.
