Kids say: Not yet rated

This comedy is unlikely to amuse kids and teens. Trippin' with the Kandasamys is like a dreadful I Love Lucy episode, the kind where everyone overacts and the plot turns on childish behavior by adults bolstered by performances that feel more like mugging than acting. For example, two middle-aged women eavesdrop on their enemy and moronically cannot stay quiet enough to avoid detection. The husbands are so selfish, childish, and generally unlikable that it becomes difficult to understand why their wives care about them. And their juvenile behavior is so ingrained that their apologies seem hollow and utterly unbelievable. The best thing about this is a colorfully-costumed Bollywood dance extravaganza at the end, indicating, without any evidence, that all problems have been solved.
