...I did enjoy [Mr. Belding's] cameo, but that doesn't change the fact that watching the movie is akin to sitting inside a Chuck E. Cheese for an hour and a half.

The moral of Max Keeble's Big Move is that it's awfully easy to say the right thing after getting away with the wrong thing.

Bogged down with the current clichés of prepubescent comedy.

Parents may shift uneasily in their seats while their wee ones cheer on the food fights, crotch-kicking and dirty jockstrap gags.

A Disney Channel sitcom pilot that no one over 13 would ever want to watch.

Young kids may like it (others stay far away), but it is guaranteed that no audience member, young or old, will be able to relate to it.

The movie is nothing if not predictable.

Not much better than the easily forgettable straight to video and made for TV efforts it so apparently resembles.

Exactly which children Disney hopes to captivate with Keeble's Big Movea little unclear.

Bland, occasionally funny Disney comedy about a wayward seventh-grader.

If there's no way to avoid seeing Keeble's Big Move, take along a book, ideally a hefty one. With the proper arm speed and angle of release, you can probably nail the projectionist.

Wittier and more visually clever than it has to be, but you can still guess the rest if you're over 10 years old.

Children may enjoy its food fights, barf gags, slimy gross-outs, kid-power fantasies and adults' comic discomfiture, but there's not much here for anyone over 12.

It's as ugly and stupid as the kid is cute and resourceful.

Schoolyard bullying is a touchy issue these days, having been pinpointed as the root of many larger crises such as school shootings. Too bad Keeblesed the opportunity to teach kids something about it.
