Just for kids
28 December 2002 | by tributarystuSee all my reviews

I had the "honor" today, to view this "masterpiece". A movie about two girls who stole a snow making machine...and guess what! Santa needs it! Oh, that's so sweet! BUT IT'S WRONG!

Not the story itself, but the way it was put on screen, having as target audience only kids...like less than 12 year old kids. Even my sisters found it pathetic, so I judged that age based on theirs.

I'd like to point out some things. One of them is, that some ideas of the movie weren't that bad, but most clearly the film was done in such a way, that it should not interest people who really want to see good movies.

Actors...well, what can you expect? I think I'd mark their performance as decent. I was really curious how the two girls would act, as I had already seen Spencer Breslin in "The Kid". His performance was acceptable, and you could notice that his character had some quite similar traits as the one in "The Kid". Anyway, he did not have a role as important as in the movie with Bruce Willis, but it was still nice to see his nice face again.

The two girls,played by Brenda Song and Hallee Hirsh, didn't have one of the hardest "jobs"... it's not that hard to play the role you actually play in real life. I tried to compare their performances with the ones of the "over talented" kids from Harry Potter. I find it hard to make a comparison between them though, because as I said, it's easy to be yourself, but it's much harder to be a teenage wizard, right?

Let me finish this short opinion sharing. The movie was pathetic, generally because it was made for little kids...still, I've seen movies with that target audiences that did make me have fun. Guess this just wasn't the case.
