I am enough of a realist to realize that adults probably had to come into this plot at one point or another, but the adults, unfortunately, bring grown-up movie cliches along with them, and that spoils some of the fun.

I just have a vague sense of hating it.

A comedy adventure story that reminds us how open and honest communication can break down the walls of fear existing between people and nations.

Bearable, but mostly middling
