December 21, 2018
It's a family-friendly movie with a warmhearted message for children that -- surprisingly -- isn't too cheesy for their parents to enjoy as well.

Talent-swapping basketball tale is bland but OK for kids.

Headlining a less-than-mediocre kids' movie taints one's brand rather than enhancing it. Just ask Shaq.

It might be more effective with a hint of subtlety and a premise that isn't so flimsy and formulaic.

The film has a great, if not commonplace, message: Work hard to get ahead. Don't take any shortcuts. Nothing wrong with kids wasting 90 minutes if they come away with that theme.

Sells itself on durable messages about strong work ethic, the importance of community relations and playing to one's individual potential.

This "Freaky Friday" with basketball keeps throwing airballs.

Bland, feebly acted comedy, concentrating more on laughs and half-realized messages of adolescent responsibility than solidifying a truly bizarre premise.

"Thunderstruck" isn't especially funny or exciting, and its muddled lesson is about as convincing as Marv Albert's luxuriant russet wig. But it's not terrible.
