Good movie for people who are shy

I like this movie because I'm shy, and I feel this would help me come out of my shell. It's all innocent and good for any kid. Actually, I really like this movie because I feel I can relate to Pete, unlike many characters in movies.

Hatching Pete

Hatching Pete is a simple movie. It has okay direction and good acting but the movie kind of lags on. Overall Hatching Pete is a really good movie.

Great message and fun for little kids

I thought Hatching pete wasn't a very good movie, a bit cheesy and I found myself getting bored after awhile. But this is a fun movie for families to watch and the message is to be confident and show who you are. The main characters are good role models too. Fun for littler kids!

This a a typical Disney Channel Original Movie (but with some expectations, like having the lead character be a male). It's fine for kids. There's some flirting but that's about it.

It is kind of stupid!

The commercials even make the movie stupid.
