A bad sitcom of a movie.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that the humor here centers around children using salty adult language, repeated groin-bashing and -- you guessed it -- diaper activities. And though this is a film that would seemingly appeal to young children, the sexual innuendo and roughhousing make it appropriate, inexplicably, only for tweens. Some kids may enjoy the diaper gags, but overall the humor is too crass and misguided to recommend to them. And even among tweens, those who feel insulted by bad TV sitcoms shouldn't risk it.

Terrible! The worst of could be in the filmography of Bob Clark. A low point in Christopher Lloyd carrer.
