  • Summary: After a rough first day of school, much-bullied seventh grader Max Keeble finds out that he's moving to a new city in a week. Rather than put up with the normal routine of school, he begins an all-out plan for retaliation on all the people who have picked on him. (Disney)

    Its overall view of 12-year-old life is essentially one of high-spirited fun.

    It's a clever plot with a minimum of the already tired standard kids-on-computers sequence and a maximum of silly face-to-face deflation.

    Realistic, it's not. But Max Keeble's Big Move, predictable though it may be, makes most of the right moves for the older elementary/younger middle school market.

    A shamelessly derivative, if basically likeable, kid's picture.

    The real shocker is how many grown men it took to conceive and write this lamebrained tale.

    Even though children will probably enjoy the film, without any intelligent humor or surprises, Max Keeble's Big Move will definitely disappoint those who were born before 1988.

    The writers must have racked their brains for the formula: two parts other movies to one part childhood revenge fantasies

    I simply love this movie. I saw it so long ago and it's still the funniest movie I've seen in my life. Unlike most live-action films, it's stylish and colourful. A lot is simple but you watch Max perform and it's like you're watching him in real life because of its energy, which is mostly how it gets its laughs on it's own. It's not my favourite movie ever, but simply a must-see for young and old. Expand

    Mr. McGoogles was awesome! It was a great movie and very funny; it had my family room filled with laughter.

    Enjoyable for kids from ages 6-12, but almost everyone out of that age range will not find this movie to be that good. There's much better fare out there for kids anyway. Expand

    The movie was average to say the least. kids from 6-11 would enjoy it. And to be honest, there were some ok moments but not enought to convince me that this film is good. Collapse
