Not bad

Cute movie if you like these kinds of movies.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

The opening action is narrated by a sarcastic cat, and that interesting device showcases the script at its most clever; things go downhill from there. Director David DeCoteau, also known for such works as 90210 Shark Attack and Bigfoot vs. D.B. Cooper, trained under director/producer Roger Corman (Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf), king of the cheap and terrible horror/slasher flicks, and the sets, costumes, and performances look about as low-budget as it gets. Male model Jud Birza, winner of the 2010 Survivor series, gets away with a one-note performance -- his job is to be a chick magnet, which he accomplishes handily by simply standing there in front of the camera. Not the best, but could be silly fun for a sleepover party.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
