Watch it like a kid, with your kids
30 November 2013 | by thebigh69See all my reviews

It's a movie for kids, people! Get in the spirit and watch it like a kid would, and have a little fun.

Okay, the plot's kind of confusing aside from the opposite day premise, and the acting is, well, often juvenile, and it's all a lot of silliness, but that's the point. It's like kids wrote and directed it, which is what makes it good in the eyes of a child.

Of course, the message is that being a parent is harder than it seems -- duh, any adult can see that one coming. But most kids won't.

My 7-year-old girl enjoyed it, and it was fun to watch it with her as her parent -- and that's all that matters.
