I took my 2 boys and their friends, ages 5-8. They all had fun. I heard their little giggles and some outbursts of laughter throughout. They had a great time, and I thought it was cute too. Not Oscar-winning, but a good option for a Sunday afternoon!

This is a great movie to take your kids to and yet adults get to enjoy it on a whole different level. Great fun for the kids and lots of "conspiracy theory" and TV show history for the parents. I took my 9 year old daughter and her best friend to watch it, and they loved it.
If you get my Obama reference, give me a thumbs up.

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.

Enjoyable for all ages. Parents, this is a great movie for little kids, but you'll also enjoy a lot the humor as well. Very touching story.
