I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.
To all those who have watched it: I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.
Great story, amazing characters, superb action, enthralling cinematography. Yes, this is something I am glad I spent money on.
The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Alright, I'm going to give this a 10 out of 10, just to counter some of the ridiculous reviews that this movie got on IMDb. It looks like some people saw this movie with the wrong expectations, really. If you expect something like Naked Gun or Airplane (which are great Nielsen-movies too, by the way), sure, you'll be disappointed. Cause the joke-density isn't nearly as high, all jokes are PG-rated and thus less appealing to the more mature audience and Nielsen's character sometimes even seems to know what he's talking about rather than acting like a complete clown.But that's because Family Plan is a whole different movie! It's a family movie, not one of those slapstick that we all know Nielsen from! And sure, I know movies in this genre aren't popular with the 'serieus film critics', but I enjoyed it! I really did! The whole cast is showing a lot of enthusiasm and Trevor Morgan and Zachary Browne are doing a great job at portraying two mischievous kids who still have their hearts in the right place.Family Plan is really a movie that you can just watch with a smile on your face the whole time, rather than being buried under an avalanche of jokes. I like the fact that it never goes slapstick and that there's enough space for the touching story of two boys looking for a home. So what that the story isn't that original, and that it's not Nielsen's best work. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end, and that's what you should judge a movie on!
I thought it was very similar to Rent-A-Kid. They had the same characters, and type of story. Leslie Neilsen made me laugh, and so did the guy who played Matt. But I think that they could have added more to it.
This is one of Leslie Nielsen's worst movies ever, even though he's not really the main character. I laughed about 0.4 times during this dragging crapfest that seemed to last forever and made me question why I enjoy movies at all. The studio was wise to make it a straight-to-video release because it would have made about $40 in theaters.
Perhaps the worst film I've seen in a long time. All cliche all the time. Leslie Nielson plays his Airplane, Naked Gun, etc. etc. character, Judge Reinhold is awful and those are the good things abut this bomb!
