The script is formula and so is the direction, which leaves the acting.

It can't decide whether to be a mushy valentine to the dad-son relationship, masculine style, or a not-very-clever comedy.

Here is a movie with broad ambitions: It wants to be a caper, a comedy, a romance, and a showcase for MacAulay Culkin. That's too much of a stretch.

The dysfunctional family in this film is little more than a shameless plot device to introduce a lame father/son bonding adventure.

Howard Deutch is a proficient enough second division director, but here he allows sentimentality to run riot, and the awkwardly ageing Culkin (approaching adolescence) no longer possesses the mischievous charm of old.

Yeah, the one with Macaulay Culkin and Ted Danson. Avoid at all conceivable cost.

This seems to be the work not of screenwriters but of Hollywood marketing executives who believe movies are popular because they tell audiences what they want to hear.

Neither Macaulay Culkin nor Ted Danson has improved his luck in selecting projects with this schizophrenic comedy.

The feeble attempts at verbal and physical slapstick are so lacking in humour that they're embarrassing for both the players and audience.

The new summer movies don't get much more formulaic than this bald attempt to capture the audience that can't wait to see the next three or four installments of Home Alone.

It's so monotonously unimaginative that it practically qualifies as child abuse.

The only point to this movie is to make Macaulay a millionaire.
