However, complications ensue when it comes to light that the company Jennifer works for is the same one trying to run David’s family out of business.
Scoring Notes: generally a +5 is the highest I will give a component. A -5 is the lowest. If it goes beyond that, then you know I am quite serious
+5 for Laura Vandervoot (Smallville’s Supergirl)
+10 for Nick Zano (DC Legend’s of Tomorrow)
Production (Writing/Directing/Soundtrack, etc):
+5 for Writing and the over all story
+3 for the Directing
+0 for original plot idea (aka not original in the least, but carried out well)
-2 for family friendliness. The movie is very *visually* clean; but there are some jokes and moments that some parents would find objectionable for their younger children.
+5 because I’d rewatch.
+10 because its been a few days and I don’t remember anything else about the movie. But I did enjoy it and it deserves at least a 30.
Overall Score: 36
