  • This family comedy adventure from Walden Media is likable in a scruffy way. Its characters, especially the youngest one, are engaging, and few adults are immune to childhood fantasies about secluded tropical isles. show more

  • Breslin, so memorable in "Little Miss Sunshine," suffers the most. Skilled and reactive with humans, she doesn't quite muster the same engagement with her finned and flippered costars here. show more

  • Exhilarating and enchanting family picture. It's the best I've seen this year and highly recommended for girls and for boys, too. show more
