1.5 of 4

“..this movie got made at all demonstrates that Hollywood thinks that if it can design a project so as to yield half a dozen different digital sequences for the trailer, no one will much care about whether they add up to anything..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..smarter and less screwball than previous attempts at the material have been..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..it's more of an acquired taste than the average Ben Stiller comedy, but this eccentric family-friendly entry should find a significant core of admirers..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
