I was hoping that the charisma of Martin, Hunt, and Levy might save some of it, but... nope. In fact, the only one who comes out unscathed is Bonnie Hunt, who never really has to do enough to make herself look like a complete moron. Unfortunately, Martin and Levy fill that void, and their dignity does not remain intact. I was also surprised by some of the gags, which aren't really funny - just absurd and dangerous. In one incident, a little kid runs around with a bag filled with fireworks... while they're actually going off. Another gag involves a guy in a wheelchair getting constantly knocked into a lake. Is that stuff funny? Even if it is, does that make it appropriate for a family film? No, it's not appropriate, and it's not funny. The biggest compliment I can give this film is that it's noticeably better than YOURS, MINE AND OURS... but that's pretty much the equivalent of bragging that your kid's better at sports than a quadriplegic. (Whoops - looks like I just lowered myself to the standards of this film...)
Audio Commentary (with director Adam Shankman): This is a fairly average commentary, with the director making plenty of lame jokes and every now and then letting slip interesting tidbits (like how often actors were filmed seperately from the scenes). Feel free to skip it.
FOX Movie Channel: Casting Session (8:05): A standard featurette in which the director, the casting director, and others offer up their thoughts on the actors in the film, and why they were chosen. Skip it.
Camp Chaos (10:18): Interspered mainly with footage from the film, this interview-filled featurette only delivers a little bit of decent information, as well as some solid behind-the-scenes footage. Overall, it feels more like 10 minutes of self-praising then an actual informative making-of.
A Comedic Trio (5:29): More self-praising, as the cast and crew discuss the combination of three great actors - Martin, Hunt, and Levy. Boooooring.
Also included is an Inside Look at FLICKA and AQUAMARINE, 2 Theatrical Trailers, and a Preview.
