Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A treasure quest and plenty of pirates and potty humor bring surefire kid appeal and make it easy for kids to overlook the cheesy effects and clichés that adults will see right through. Based on a story created by the director's son, it's no surprise that Thrill Ride has a lot of what kids want from a good adventure. But it's also pretty predictable and not very original -- traits that keep it from being a movie the whole family will enjoy together. It's fine for big-kid action/adventure lovers who can handle a couple of instances of "damn," a kiss, some fantasy violence, and a few mild scares here and there.
