It is not scary!

It is a fun movie that is not scary at all. It is hilarious that the kids become pirates and lose their memory and have to try and fix all the things they did.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (5 ):

ONE CRAZY CRUISE is a wacky comedy adventure that will keep kids watching and laughing to the very last minute. By stacking the deck with familiar Nickelodeon faces, not to mention an appearance by red-hot singing sensation Cody Simpson, the movie's guaranteed to be a hit with the young crowd. The fact that the story's plot is altogether improbable does little to tarnish its appeal, and entire families will enjoy watching the characters wrestle with one absurdity after another as they try desperately to understand the mayhem they caused in their hypnotic state.

Fun and games aside, there's plenty of reason to like this movie's sentiments about the ties that bind members of all types of families. Even the newly minted Jensen-Bauer siblings, who start the story less than thrilled about this exercise in bonding, learn a lot from the experience and come to appreciate each other in a new way. In addition to the film being lots of fun to watch, the story illustrates the value of family members having your back ... especially when it comes to being handcuffed to a prosthetic leg or finding a sea lion in your closet.
