Movie Info

When a famous author is abducted by obsessed fanboys and winds up in the clutches of two sinister brothers, it's up to his daughter and her friends to stage a daring rescue mission. All fourteen year old Melissa (Emily Osment) ever wanted was some quality time with her father Neal (George Newbern), the author of a series of popular young adult adventure novels. But Neal spends more time dreaming up missions for his fictional hero Tripp Zoome than bonding with his lonely daughter. Hoping to pry her dad away from work for just a few days, Melissa organizes a special daughter-dad vacation. Unfortunately Melissa's plan overlaps with a promotional event for her dad's latest book. Just then, Neil becomes the target of a treacherous kidnapping plot. Now in order to rescue her father and save the day, young Emily attempts to channel her "inner Zoome" and races to the rescue.

    For the most part, it was original. It had many touching parts, which are welcome in any movie. Although the dialogue was a little silly, the film overall, was very fun and enjoyable.

    Here's my impression of what goes on at a Disney conference: Guy A: Dude I got a really bad script here" Guy B: How bad? Guy A: So bad I can use it as toilet paper, but that would rake toilet paper down a level. Woman A: Well we have to make it, why don't we just take some stars from all our best shows put them in there and problem fixed. Guy B: Do you think anyone would notice the movie will still suck? HELL YES!!! This is by far one of the worst made for TV movies Disney has ever put out. The plot was atrocious, and the actting was so bad you can tell the actors did not want to be in the film, except they were contractually obligated. They signed on the Disney dotted line in their own blood now the Mouse forever owns them. Okay so picture if you will a bunch of best selling kids books about a teen super-spy who uses tricked out dental gadgets to get the job done. This character is so popular that even teachers are psyched to hear book reports on the latest novel. So when the author is abducted -- first by 3 over-zealous fans, and then by 2 antagonist that your crippled grand-mother can beat up -- it is up to his daughter to rescue him, discovering that she was the basis for his main character. Yeah so just picture J.K. Rowling getting kidnapped by some Harry Potter fans, and you get the general idea. *sigh* Borrrrring. I know Disney is big on the whole sequel thing but if anyone thinks a sequel is a good idea, I hope you get kidnapped by some fans. Don't worry you can probably get away as if you are a fan of this movie you obviously are stupid.
