It's too bad the relentlessly conventional minds that made this movie couldn't have made the leap from sitcom to comedy.

Its appeal is based almost entirely on regression -- a thematic regression to infancy and a stylistic regression to the most lulling kind of TV blandness.

Although film is a bit uneven, production benefits from a tasty look, an airy tone, and a delectable, unblemished performance from Hannah.

The movie is cute, light, and fluffy, perhaps not the laugh-fest I had remembered but enough to get by.
