Okay, let me get this straight: an 11-year-old child, who is neither a lawyer nor a member of the family, approaches a judge with a totally bogus "legal document" asking that a family's house should be taken away from the legal owners and given to their pre-teen children. The judge obligingly approves this homemade "court order" despite the fact that no divorce papers have been filed and the parents are not even separated yet. The pre-teen kids then brazenly inform the parents that they have to take turns living in the house, Dad this week and Mom the next. The parents, being utter morons, obligingly accept this decree and move out without even consulting a lawyer. Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? No, it doesn't. This movie is pure gibberish, and so squeaky-clean you want to slap the characters. Good for an incredulous laugh, but that's about it.
