Nothing too special about the this movie. The only chuckles from the audience came during a few sight gag moments.
The dialogue lacked any significant wit or charm. This is a rental.

This movie teaches kids that it is not cool to be smart or be a scientist. While the smart brother saves the day in the end, the constant degrading comments about being a nerd is what will stick with kids. This movie teaches kids that being a scientist is boring and means you're boring. They made comments toward Gary (the smart brother) that being smart meant he had no social life in high school and it was unbelievable that he was able to score a hot wife. In other words, being smart isn't cool. The comments "turn your brain off" and "thinking means doing nothing" made me livid. Science and smarts is what saves the day in the end, but does science and smarts get any glory? Almost none! This movie teaches kids that being smart and being a scientist isn't cool, which is a message that shouldn't be sent to our kids.

What you would expect from a kids movie. Started out a bit slow BUT quickly the action started and the kids we were with got into it. One even commented--"hey, this movie is starting to get good now" and this coming from a 7 year old is about as objective as you get. It's worth it but I would still opt for a cheap showing...a little too pricey for prime time shows if you ask me. Not as good as Monster's Inc or Toy story of course but those were pretty solid shows...hard to match.

Overall good 'kid-flick' without insulting the intelligence. Good fun, and good to hear some familiar voices. Includes a recognition of some of us 'old-timers' by having a nod to the Beatles.
Clean, funny, tried-and-true plot with a new twist.
Might be worth saving the theatre money and simply buying it when it comes out.

It was your typical good guys vs. bad guys movie. Which I am not a very big fan of, all cartoon movies seem to be like this. There were some funny parts and the some of the graphics were impressive. I think it was okay. My seven old said 'it was good, kind...little too much drama'.
