I have to disagree with this reviewer respectfully (as I normally agree with him). I saw this film at a preview screening in Los Angeles visiting a friend and witnessed an entire audience (200+ people) laugh constantly at all the right moments. I'd say it's even refreshing. I look forward to taking my kids to see the film here in NYC. As most family films suck, this one doesn't. Sorry N. Schager, you got this one wrong.
