A man finds the son he never knew he had, and a boy discovers a city he never knew existed, in this comedy.

Roughly half of Tim Allen's latest comedy is hilarious-stupid, and the rest is monotonous-stupid.
Simple truths are often the most effective, but in this instance they are only banal and mildly amusing.
Typically for Disney, the villains aren't made of very stern stuff, nor indeed is fey spear-carrying Mimi-Siku.
Huntington is wonderful at conveying Mimi's combination of naivete and intelligence, and Allen is a marvel.
Now if only it was even slightly better than those examples of Hollywood at its laziest.
This very Disney treatment of the classic fish out of water story ought to satisfy its intended audiences: kids and the parents who must accompany them.
A fairly awful Tim Allen comedy.
If you care at all about surface plausibility, adults who act like adults, or emotions that exist anywhere other than in manipulative movies, spare yourself and spare your family.
It's a good cast. The movie uses the physical comedy talents of Short and Allen to good advantage.
You'd think someone would have figured out by now that putting a big TV star in a lame movie doesn't make the movie any better.
If it didn't work the first time, what makes you think it will work the second?
The material is so fowl that even a rewrite by Quentin Tarantino couldn't help it.
I'm sorry to say that most of the children in the audience ate this crap up, which is just another disturbing sign that America's youth is in trouble.
Allen just looks like he realizes he is much smarter than this material.
