Unaccompanied Minors (2006)



Critic Consensus: Unaccompanied Minors, while featuring credible performances by its mostly young cast, is simply a rehash of other, funnier movies.

Critic Reviews for Unaccompanied Minors

All Critics (89) | Top Critics (31)

Irresponsible content notwithstanding, it's the low standard of filmmaking that really defies belief.

Top Critic

Most Saturday morning cartoons are more realistic, and actually funnier.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

Unaccompanied Minors is packed with talent in front of and behind the camera, which makes its bland mediocrity even more unforgivable.

AV Club
Top Critic

Not for the faint of heart, the movie is unsettling and startlingly true to life.

New York Times
Top Critic

Unaccompanied Minors may not be the worst holiday comedy ever made, but frankly I can't think of something from that genre that sinks lower than this frighteningly bad movie.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

If you really must find something to distract your children from Christmas shopping and material yearning, this one gets top recommendation for happily occupying 90 minutes at the mall.

Audience Reviews for Unaccompanied Minors


Good for a kids film, but if your not into that sort of thing, then don't even bother to watch the opening credits!

"Six kids, snowbound in an airport without supervision. Someone please call security!A snowstorm has cancelled all flights at Hoover International, and all are stranded. That's bad news for most. But for children shuttling unaccompanied from one place to another, its a ticket for adventure!"Warning! Unless you want yourself and the kids to go to sleep, stay away from this!I know its a kids film... But I thought this was just flat out lame. I was expecting to watch clean fun chaos, but this had no originality, no interesting kiddie escapades, an insult to every rich girl there is, and please dont tell me parents these days let their kids have that "Jon Bon Jovi" hairstyle! --- If theres any consolation to watching this, you get to see Wilmer Valderrama (Fez, That 70's Show) on screen again, but he just plays a character that goes in and out of the movie, and even his lines were weak and recycled. Theres also a couple of dancing scenes where Tyler James Williams (kid from Everybody Hates Chris) shows off his funky side, but other than that.. There really isnt much to get from this flick.It really is just a kids version of The Breakfast Club IN The Terminal, except... those two movies were atleast good. Youre better off watching something else.Now if you would excuse me, I have to whap my head for getting this thing...Directed by: Paul FeigGenres: Comedy, Kids & Family

I love this funny Christmas family movie in the airport I ever watched since Home Alone series. I couldn't stop laughing at the scene of 4 kids and a flight attendent riding in a canoe on a snow hill from the airport to the hotel while the head of Passenger Relations and his security guards are also on after them. COOL!
