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

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

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.

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.

Filmmaker Paul Feig has proven his creativity directing The Office and Freaks and Geeks (which he created). With Unaccompanied Minors, he piles on one unfunny gag after another, leaving little room for character development.

It's a holiday farce in a minor key, suitable for the not-ready-for-PG-13 crowd, too boring for anybody else.

There's some amusing mischief as the underage passengers outsmart the grownups, but the picture also features mean-spirited stereotypes that kill the festive mood. Talk about holiday blahs.

A lot of crotches get abused in the kiddie comedy Unaccompanied Minors. And as a viewer, I felt a lot like a crotch.

Why bother suffering through 90 minutes of bad company for a few moments of holiday cheer? Especially when you can still stay home alone and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas somewhere on TV.

Though [director] Feig has said he was aiming for the spirit of films by John Landis (Animal House), Unaccompanied Minors more closely resembles the lesser movies of director-producer John Hughes.

Though it doesn't reek of originality, Unaccompanied Minors manages to keep familiar routines entertaining and find fresh ways to revive the laughs fossilized inside old gags.

The dialogue is truly painful. The situations are so contrived they make "SpongeBob" seem like a nature documentary. But what's more annoying about Minors, is the calculation behind it.

How do you defang and declaw caustic standup comic and commentator Lewis Black? Stick him in a PG-rated holiday family movie, then stand back and watch the laughs not pile up.

Cycles of escape, recapture and punishment ensue, though a climactic infusion of Christmas spirit helps keep results merry.
