  • It's a pleasant and well-intentioned end of summer diversion that doesn't possess the imagination-stoking qualities of a premier children's movie. show more

  • The worms, the real stars of the film, are fairly impressive, looming large, plump and slimy as they are boiled, fried, served with sauce and added to omelettes and smoothies. show more

  • After the first bit of fish bait is consumed, actually even before, this one-trick movie is a tough slog. show more
