Getting Even With Dad


Getting Even With Dad

Critics Consensus

Overly formulaic and tonally inconsistent, Getting Even with Dad tries for a sentimental conclusion it doesn't earn and winds up a slapsticky cash grab aimed at fans of Home Alone.

    a very funny family movie that makes getting even with your dad fun and hillarious. A

    Pretty fair movie, but not one I'd call "good." I have on VHS a movie that my dad taped of me and my aunts, cousins, etc., and my step-grandmother said when this movie's trailer came on tv, "That's going to be good." It's ok, but not good.

    One of Macaulay Culkin's few movies after Home Alone where he tried hard to keep that "I'm a naughty cute kid" act that just didn't work for him anymore.

    A pretty silly family fun movie but it's easy to like Culkin in this one.
