Cute for Kids.
18 August 2001 | by RadiantMessSee all my reviews

Jumping Ship was a cute movie, some of the action might be a little intense for some of the target audience (7-10 year old's), but it should be on the money for 11 and 12 year old's. Andrew Lawrence has grown some, well he should've, he is human. But the fact that the triplets are working together on a show is refreshing. But one thing I found a bit comical was the fact that the name Jake Hunter (Played by Matthew Lawrence) is almost the exact same as one of his previous characters, Jack Hunter, on the TV series 'Boy Meets World'. But again, on the movie, the plot is alright, the characters are alright, but the fact that a crocodile was in the ocean seemed a bit, well, odd. But I'm not an animal expert so I wouldn't know.
