I bought this movie at one of those previewed movies for sale at the local video shop and it was a great buy for $5. But, I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it.
My son and I have watched this movie 3 or 4 times (at my son's request) and it's really not as bad as the previous rater stated. At first, I was completely put off by the kids' behavior in this movie; they were disrespectful and rude throughout 90% of the film, which made me almost hate the movie. But their horrible behavior, due to their father being out of their life, is exactly the point of the movie. Accept that and you'll enjoy some laughs resulting from the kids' antics and Ice's responses to them.
If you're looking for a movie suitable for the 7-12 year old crowd, this one is probably a good choice. They'll enjoy it. And you may find, as I did, that you can't resist the urge to remind your kids that they are NEVER to behave as poorly as the kid actors in this movie.
As an adult, I gave this movie a 4/10 rating for the reasons stated above. However, my 9 year old would likely rate the movie an 8.
Overall, it's not so bad.
