    Shorts is far too long.
    The movie is absolutely terrible, horrible kids movie, and just awful in general. The script is bad, the acting is bad, and the entire premise is just terrible.

  1. Adult actors pretty much let the youngsters upstage them. The two leads, Bennett and Vanier, do a nice job holding the center of gravity while the film goes nuts around them. Best of all, Shorts is short, finishing before you can truly get tired of all those wishes gone wrong.

    More zippy, diverting fun from Robert Rodriguez's family filmmaking factory.

    A cute and mildly clever fantasy.
