I'll give it 4 stars. The story line is great and the kids did an awesome job, but some scenes were just really corny and dumb. Especially when Brad drove Dusty's motorcycle in the house and jumped out on his car. Also the ending was corny, but smart. Although I'm glad it didn't end with the kids watching violence. I know kids hear all sorts of language and I know most of them repeat it (I repeated some as a kid), but I can't stand movies where kids are cussing. This movie makes sense and I felt bad for Brad and angry at Dusty. Was happy to see them getting along finally. I don't have any kids, so I don't know from the point of view of the struggles of parents and step parents, but this movie does bring light to the situations and feelings some parents may go through. You have to figure out how to get along with the other parents and find peace. I am happy to watch a movie that brings light to the subjects about bullying and standing up for yourself and fighting for what's right, but wondered why the parents didn't go to the school and demand more done about the bullying. Sometimes you may need to take matters into your own hands, but too many kids these days think bullying is fun and fighting is the answer. Growing up, bullying wasn't really an issue. Today that's all we hear about. There were some really funny moments and jaw dropping shocking moments, but overall a great film. I always heard it was a great film and just now getting around to watching it. I would watch this again, but it's not on my priority watch list to see again and again. Maybe to see Wahlberg. He's always been a hottie. Grew up lovin him. The ending was corny, but that shows you karma always comes back around.
