Mom and Dad Save the World, which was directed by Greg Beeman and has the straggly feel of an extended Saturday Night Live skit, boasts unusually inspired production design.

Mom and Dad Save the World is an insult to the idea of children's entertainment.

Here's a novel idea: A kids' movie with parents as heroes. That twist is the most -- some might say only -- refreshing element in Mom and Dad Save the World.

Yet another overwrought but uninspired fantasy in which all the wit is in the amusingly stylized sets and costumes rather than the script.

Little kids will find some infantile laughs in Mom and Dad Save the World, but adults will be looking at their watches during this silly sci-fi comedy.

One of those comedies that might sound like a zany hoot when pitched to a movie studio but that in execution emerges virtually laugh-free.

An intolerably feeble sci-fi spoof.
