With Solange Knowles and Bow Wow, I had expected something more than a weak and failing attempt at a feel-good family comedy. The movie was just far-fetched and dumb, enough said. There are only three scenes that were worth watching; the cup in the car episode (my little brother did that once...sick), and the Bun World was funny too...actually that's just two but oh, well.
And now the bad points, ah, where to begin. Okay, first of all, the dialogue, plot, and irony of the movie made it corny overall. Since when do people pick up teenage hitchhikers, and since when do people not suspect anything when that hitchhiker panics when trying to have her picture taken, and since when do the people have the hitchhiker spend the night in the same hotel room, and since when do those hitchhikers have hidden baby alligators names Twinkie? And also since when do they throw a whole family, kindergartener and all, in a barred jail cell? And since when do family reunions consist of a talent show? It was this kind of kiddie (well not even, in this case) ironic stuff that made me give this movie one star. Sorry(...), but I had expected more.
