It's a holiday farce in a minor key, suitable for the not-ready-for-PG-13 crowd, too boring for anybody else.
| Original Score: 2/5

It's clear very early on that Warner Bros. wanted less a thoughtful film about divorce or coming of age than a chipper family pick-me-up. And thus we have Unaccompanied Minors, which is one-third heart and two-thirds cheese.

It's The Breakfast Club for middle schoolers with slightly lower-grade angst and a less memorable soundtrack.

It's a prefab slapstick-'n'-pathos stew that doesn't taste like anything.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

This is a silly, moderately funny fantasy fit for kids whose parents care about them too much to ever let them run around unsupervised at an airport.

Most Saturday morning cartoons are more realistic, and actually funnier.

Predigested drivel.

Just another lame tween screwball comedy (emphasis on the 'screwball', not so much on the 'comedy').

A lot of crotches get abused in the kiddie comedy Unaccompanied Minors. And as a viewer, I felt a lot like a crotch.

Why does the token black kid have to be comic relief?

Irresponsible content notwithstanding, it's the low standard of filmmaking that really defies belief.

What these kids really need for Christmas is acting lessons.

Maybe Unaccompanied Minors are the only ones who should go see this movie. Give them some soda, popcorn and milk duds, then let them rip up the theater, while Mom and Dad see something good

Designed only for the youngest of children, who might be roused by the silly action, or perhaps for John Hughes, who might delight in the fact that his influence continues to color the landscape.

This romp just isn't funny or original enough to become a holiday classic. Although the solid cast makes it watchable.

... moves the film along with a modicum of snap and manages to keep the kids' performances from sliding into complete sentimental mush, if only barely.

Tedious at 89 minutes, the entire concept could be subtitled: The Joy of Vandalism. It's a terminally boring layover.

Produzido para funcionar como comédia leve e divertida, Menores Desacompanhados só conseguiu me deixar de mau humor.

Feig's sympathies toward young misfits are still thankfully evident, but the mature, realistic approach that made 'Freaks and Geeks' so refreshing is missing here.
