    A perfectly entertaining and funny family movie. Kids are going to get the most laughs out of this, but Will Ferrell's crazier moments will crack up the adults too. The only real problem with it is it's familiarity. The morals it tries to teach have been taught in a thousand other movies, and you pretty much know how the overall plot is going to turn out. Still, if you're looking for some laugh's Ferrell delivers. In the end that's all that matters in a comedy, so it's worth a watch. Full Review »
