It's clearly a kids' movie, the plot is rather far-fetched and the characters are totally two-dimensional. Logan Lerman's acting isn't the best but improves in the second half. I enjoyed it though. Brie Larson's character doesn't really end up as a romantic interest and there's a fairly evident subtextual relationship between Lerman and Linley. I love the scene when they're on the boat traversing the everglades together.

A bright and breezy film in typical American style and complete with a message about animal conservation. In this film we are doubly rewarded by not only Logan Lerman but barefoot Cody Linley as well! The plot is the familiar new-boy-at-school theme who meets interesting mystery boy of Nature and the girl interest (of course!) is provided by the boy's sister (Brie Larson). There are plenty of laughs along with the time worn message of how kids on their own can stand up to and beat the big property developer ... well, at least in films anyway.

The DVD extras are among the most I have ever seen. There is an interesting director and writer's commentary as well as how the film was made and behind the scenes features. Logan seems in awe of long-time actor Robert Wagner.
