Unnecessary "gag" that involves the death of a pet

This movie has haunted me ever since I watched it. As of writing this, I have five parakeets and I love them all dearly. I've had to deal with the pain of two passing and having to put one down in the past and it's an incredibly heartbreaking experience. The kids bring a parakeet along in this movie and one of the dads accidentally kills it. There's an awful sound as we hear him sit/step on this poor bird... Seeing that made the rest of the movie lose any and all funniness and positivity. The plot would have been NO DIFFERENT had they not killed the budgie. Please research movies or watch them first before you let your kids see them. I'm 19 now and thinking about that scene or seeing stuff about this movie makes me want to cry.

Nothing bad in it. Poor acting. Poor production. Not worth seeing.
