Over-indulgent children's comedy that's let down by a sloppy script, patchy direction and some poor performances, though it does have the occasional moment and its target audience will probably enjoy it.
Filmed in eye-popping cartoony colours and with eye-popping cartoony acting to match... the kids mug enthusiastically in school nativity play fashion amid fidgety, hyper-active camerawork that suggests the director has eaten too many blue Smarties.
Three decades fewer on the clock would doubtless lighten my perspective, but the slapstick here seems gauche, while the script fails to provide the game young cast with much in the way of character or comedy.
