Goofs

While it's obvious that Swindle is the movies antagonist, it could be argued that he in fact is the victim. The way he obtained the baseball card was underhanded in the extreme but in no way illegal. The kids however commit several crimes, including blackmail and credit card fraud. It's perfectly reasonable to say that the true villains of the movie were in fact Griffin and his gang. See more »

You can only expect so much from a Nick movie!
25 August 2013 | by bnoel-774-515447See all my reviews

First and foremost, this is a NICKELODEON TV MOVIE. If you are expecting an Oscar winning performance or storyline, some reevaluation of your life should be done. Keeping that in mind, this movie is probably one of the best kid's made for TV films I've seen in a long time. Although, it wasn't laugh out loud funny, it definitely kept my attention through out the entire 120 minutes. The story was VERY well done. All of the characters were quirky and like able. And the character development in a few of the characters (Darren and Amanda) were really cute(for lack of better words). I didn't personally read the book, but the changes should be no surprise to anyone.

All in all, this movie was really good. Something the kids can watch with adults, but without the latter dying of boredom. I definitely recommend it for those who aren't ridiculously and unnecessarily critical.
