Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

This mostly forgettable buddy comedy is a long-winded series of outlandish and bizarre circumstances that grow tired after the first 30 minutes or so. It's not terribly clever, and the laughs become easy to predict after a while, but on the whole, the content isn't a worry for kids and tweens who may want to watch.

If bright spots are to be found, they're in Mark and Russell's friendship, which proves it can endure just about anything that's thrown at it; and in Gauthier's very funny portrayal of Glenn the dim driving instructor. There's also a nice culmination to the geeky-guy-loves-popular-girl device, with some obvious reminders about the sometimes surprising rewards of embracing what makes you unique.
