So I know that this movie has gotten mixed reviews, but I really liked it. REALLY liked it. Yes, the first part was definitely funnier than the second half (Will Smith and Jason Bateman play off of each other very well, and I lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud), but the entire movie kept my attention. There was a weird little subplot including one of the bad guys that never really went anywhere, but that's really my only major criticism. Oh--and the special effects seemed slightly cheesy ("cheesy" isn't really the right word, but they definitely weren't up to 2008 "summer blockbuster" standards).

But yeah, overall, I definitely recommend it (it does have a lot of swearing; it doesn't bother me at all, but I just wanted to mention it for those of you who may be more sensitive to that kind of thing or who were considering bringing older kids. Other than the swearing, I do think it's an okay movie for kids to see--but stick to 12 and older).

Has anyone else seen it yet? Agree or disagree?

Haven't seen it yet, but want to. I don't even bother with reviews or what critics say, so I'll probably think it's the most kick-ass thing ever. lol

Haven't seen it yet. Will probably wait for the DVD to come out.
