Typical feel-good Disney movie... really cheesy and kind of predictable. Definitely anyone older than 11 or so wouldn't like it, but really little kids will get excited at watching this wannabe girl scout troop find happiness in the main character's brother helping out. Of course, since it's Disney, none of this would happen in real life. No teen would go to this extent to make his sister happy. The only reason I rate it off isn't for it being appropriate or not, but just because it's kind of boring and might even loose young viewers.
It didn't suprise me that this one of these Disney Movies that are trying to change kids, so they don't grow up and make horrible life descions. But it ended up to be a boring movie that was very unrealistic. All the disney movies are unrealistic and the events would never happen in REAL life. On the bright side, there were pretty good role models.
I've seen this movie and it was pretty forgettable. It's predictable and not very realistic. It might keep young kids interested, but older tweens and teens will probably dislike it. Still, fine for kids 8+ Sex: Some brief mild flirting and a brief kiss on the cheek
The slightly silly aspects of the story are greatly outweighed by its overall sweetness, especially the loving relationship between Alex and his little sister. Also the friendship between Alex and his hockey buddy is very nicely constructed as his developing friendship with the charming Mattise. No stereotypes here. The child actors who comprise Bumblebee Troop 57 are all convincing as independent minded tweens who help the main character find the right path in life. This movie was a most pleasant surprise, as it seems to be reviewed nowhere except on Common Sense Media. It is a heart warming story that--I think--will be most appreciated by girls ages 7-9 and their parents.
