Kind of awkward

There's quite some scenes that I believe are way too much for 12 year olds in fact if you look at what the kids say it's higher than the parents. It's awkward nobody want to watch that with their parents.

Cute movie, could have been better

This movie was cute, predictable, and sweet. The only problem I really had with it was the character "Amy" played by Julie Bowen from 'Modern Family'. She was the only Caucasian speaking role (that wasn't a big deal); my problem was how rude she was. At one point she was commenting on the different shades of skin color, and at another point she asked an elderly maid if she needs to use sunscreen. I think they could have used the opportunity to encourage positive inter race relations instead of succumbing to lowering another race to stupidity and rudeness.
