Is It Any Good?
In every sense, this is a bad, bad, bad movie. While the lead character is supposed to be Scottish, he grows to sound more and more like a New Yorker as 6 Children & 1 Grandfather plods on. In fact, this movie is a menagerie of fake accents. Scenes plod on with no entertainment value or overall purpose, and the actors read their lines like dazed prisoners of war. The attempts at humor are beyond trite, if not outright excruciating, and none of the six grandchildren stand out from each other or emerge as remotely likable.
There's really nothing redeeming about this movie. It's not even "so bad, it's good." Even the word "assistant" is repeatedly misspelled in the closing credits. There are so many better kids' movies with similar stories and themes out there. Literally, all of them.
