Good for tweens and older

The movie protrays the consequenses of lying in an interesting way. The movie is full of slap-stick comedy that is fun for the whole family. We have seen this movie several times and still laugh at it.

Funny family film

I think any family would enjoy this movie. The scenes were hilarious and the violence isn’t too bad. The ending scene does involve a dad instructing his son to do his “nutcracker” move on the movie’s main bad guy. The boy does a flying kick to his crotch and you hear cracking as the man groans in pain. Not really inappropriate in my opinion but I was surprised that the movie used the word “nuts” in reference to a man’s testicles.
