Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

An outlandish concept is made plausible because of sincere performances from the teen leads and entertaining because of strong rooting interest for the hero. Also, there's a message beneath the madness. Decidedly British (in a good way), in 2:Hrs even the broadest silliness has feels more sophisticated. For example, the movie has a traditional bumbling, fumbling, slapstick duo menacing the heroes, and they're actually funny-absurd rather than simply absurd. A touching subplot involving Tim's little sister Shona (wonderfully played by Fabienne Piolini-Castle) is nicely developed, as well. Not necessarily a memorable movie, but solid enough to please kids of the appropriate ages.
