    Pleasant, harmless PG-13 entertainment, with a plot a little more surprising and acting a little better than I expected. show more

    Works better than you might imagine at times but stumbles awkwardly other times. The unevenness in the writing is matched by directorial overkill in certain comic sequences. show more
