This movie was absolutely terrible. I never saw the series so I don't hold any bias or sentimentality like other reviewers. I found it incredibly dull, lifeless and idiotic. The story focuses almost entirely on George (Ellen Muth) with barely there performances by other non noteworthy actors. The subplot of her relationships with her sister is never satisfactorily resolved and wasn't understandable in the first place. Big Sis "I was terrible to you and made a promise never to speak to you again"...Little Sis "I miss you, can I move in?". Utter garbage. If you're the type of person who would spend $70 million or so to launch your cat's ashes into space, maybe you'd enjoy the other equally asinine subplot. If not, I would suggest you skip this movie. I wish I had.
