    A modestly amusing family-friendly comedy about a miniature car race that brings out the worst in overzealous fathers who compete with each other through their children.
  2. 50
    It's when adults with whitewashed notions of childhood get hold of a camera that kiddie fare - like this uninspired effort from writer-director Eric Hendershoot - goes limp.
  3. 50
    The cartoonish movie might have made for a funny half-hour short or sitcom pilot but runs out of track well before its conclusion.
  4. Crammed with charmless characters and/or hammy performances.
  5. You will regret paying money to see something that unfolds rather like something you'd watch on TV when you're ill and bedridden and confronted with nothing else but daytime soaps.

    being involved in scouts I found this movie to be really funny. I can see the parents trying take th kid out of the process.
