It's a Disney Movie
Verified purchase
It's a Disney movie aimed at kids, so they'll definetly enjoy it...I did when it first came out. Now, I watch it just for the heck of it. I still enjoy certain parts, most prominantly any scene with Doug E. Doug. I still laugh at the antics and complete lack of intelligence or even common sense on the part of the two security guards (are they security guards or cops...the movie confuses me on this point as they seem to have an office while there is a police station with police officers and everything, but security guards don't patrol, do they? My head hurts.) And of course, Peter Boyle is always fun to watch. Finally, the dog "Smokey" was also very entertaining, especially when he went after any intruders on his property. Overall, this movie is good for a few laughs as an adult. I'd reccomend it for your kids and for you only if you really feel like it. Enjoy.

I really enjoyed this movie
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this movie. I like movies with no bad language and no nudity, but with a good story line. This is perfect. The color is good, the sound is good and the picture is clear. I can hear the actors voices when the music is played. I like that. I hate movies when the music is so loud you can not hear the words said.

Cheesy. So many confusing, cluttered subplots.
Verified purchase
Unlike others, I was grateful the story line was different then the original, giving it a fresh modern spin, but the movie was really lame. I found the protagonist rude, annoying and arrogant, and the FBI agent was a little to silly for me. The best character in the movie though was Zeke. All the different story lines going on made the movie confusing and cluttered. Nice try, but blehhh. This movie apparently was aimed for a way younger audience then the original, It be ok for children. (Its clean, and filled with cheesy physical comedy) There was just to much cheesy slapstick and confusing subplots to be enjoying for me. I don't think I even cracked a smile during this entire movie, it is just that lame. THE ORIGINAL had a much more hilarious plot.
