LRA writes: This movie should not be as good as it is. Let me qualify that statement real quick though, by that I mean it should not even be in the league of mediocre let alone decent entertainment. Why is that you ask? First of all you have the man behind the camera, director Shawn Levy. He was responsible for such family "classics" as The Night at the Museum (as well as it's "amazing" sequel) and the recent remakes of Cheaper by the Dozen and The Pink Panther. Those films all share two very important qualities with each other. They were all directed by Levy and they were all successful despite how horrible they were. Secondly is the it's-so-cliche-I-shouldn 39;t-even-have-to-mention-it story with a father and son trying to reconnect after years of being apart. It isn't nearly as bad as you would think given those points but that still doesn't mean it is very good either.
