Green Queen’s review:
Okay, so I watched this while babysitting, and the kids loved it. I thought it was infantile with an unlikaeble lead and a bunch of mostly unpleasant kids. His best friend is sweet but fairly two-dimensional. Chloe Moretz lights up my world but isn't given much to do. It's mostly just...it's dealing with that transition from child to teenager, so they're at a pretty difficult age, but they main kid is so awful you just don't side with him at all.
I don't know why they don't make good kids' movies for this age group like they used to.
