I saw it today... I was somewhat blown away by it. It looked a little kiddy for me, but I liked it a little more than I expected to. For one, it's so true... people taking advantages of conveniences, from the black box to the wishing rock... and Mr. Thompson sending the "text hugs and kisses" to Mrs. Thompson... that is just so true. The plot was a little confusing for a kids movie... I was able to follow it easily, but the way they did it out of order like that... that was cool.
I may actually recommend this film... but if it still sounds too kiddy, I say at least give it a rental.
