While ninety percent of the film is good for the family, there is ten percent that I will caution parents on.

Film crumbles when the oppressive frowns are released, turning an amiable diversion into a chore to finish, due in great part to the sheer weight of the distress. The movie never fully recovers from the sour detour.

The shame here is, it's not a terrible movie. It's just pretty amateurish in terms of the direction and some of the performances.

This family film is willing to tackle important issues such as burgeoning sexuality, alcoholism and a troubled home life but does so in a bland and unconvincing story.

The story mechanics don't always work-the film vacillates between feeling heartfelt and clumsy.

This might be palatable if it weren't also fraught with leaden direction and horrible acting -- it's a painful thing when William Baldwin's the best actor you've got.

First-time director Caroline Zelder brings warmth and restraint to this tale of Montana child detectives on the case of a beloved frog puppet that, to the devastation of its over-invested owner-operator (Henry Winkler), goes missing.

Feels like an homage to a bygone era of moviemaking.
