This was a great tween movie with a sound message of doing something risky for the good of others.

It kills me to see that people are rating childrens and young teenage movies as adults I mean give the kids a break I dont think their trying to win an award for it, I think they just want to make a good kids movie to make them laugh and have fun. This movie was very funny and had a story line that viewers have seen a lot of but with a big twist like 12 year old kids robbing a bank and doing a great job doing it. The talent in this movie suprised me especially by actors Corbin Bleu/Austin and Max Thieriot/Gus but not to much by kristen stewart, after seeing her in panic room with jodie foster it was no secret she was good and has potential to be a big star sooner or later. These kids execute in every part of this movie. I hate giving away pieces of the movie but the only thing that should be said is this is a great movie for kids, teens, and any adult with a sense of humor dont let the low grades slapped on this movie stop you from watching it because you'll miss something good. I have seen the cody banks movies and the spy kids and so on those were ok but this movie is a lot better and they should make a second part.

I've read some very vicious reviews of this movie, mostly centered on 12 yr. olds robbing a bank and how terrible that was. I watched it recently and found it to be a pretty good movie, 12 year old audience oriented to be sure.

The action wouldn't look too bad for a bunch of 32 year old actors out to steal for profit ( no doubt the critics would approve of this film if Mark Wahlberg and Charlieze Theron did it instead of children)but in this case we have three kids out to get the money just so that Maddy's father can have lifesaving surgery that insurance won't cover and her mother's bank won't help out on.There's no intent or effort to take a penny for profit (at one point the bank officials can't understand why someone would only take 250K out of a vault holding 25 million).

I found the bank vault design to be a little unlikely and some of the security measures too but you can do much worse than this for a bank heist movie. I actually found the fart jokes (not much of that) and Maddy lying to her friends to get them in on the job to be much more offensive than the robbery itself.

There's no point in me reviewing this movie, because it's not a movie that was meant for me. This is purely a kid's movie.

My daughter LOVES this movie. For that past 2 days she's watched nothing else! She finds it cute, exciting and sweet (her words).

From my point of view, this movie is good. It's movie geared for kids that isn't painful for an adult to sit through. I've only seen 20 minutes here, 20 minutes there... but I was entertained every time I sat down to watch a bit of it.

I'm not sure what the reveiwers who hated it were expecting. It's not Lord Of The Rings or even Ocean's 11... but it doesn't claim to be and it's not trying to be. It's a KID's movie.

Yeah, so maybe this is not the message you want to send to kids, but it is a movie. A good movie with a story behind it. Certaintly adults don't care much for it. "They Shouldn't" It's a kids movie. I recomend you watch is more than once before you judge it. Besides Its not like Children don't hear about theft on the news.

This is a movie that delivers exactly what I expected - a kid's movie. This is a movie the whole family can enjoy. The plot: A young girl (Maddy) finds out her father is dying from an illness that only an experimental operation can cure. When she discovers that the operation cost more than her parents can afford, she makes a bad decision to steal the money from one of her mother's clients.
Maddy makes bad decision after bad decision, but I think in the end she learns from her mistakes; and it is that fact that makes the message of the movie okay by me.
I think this movie had unique characters and a very interesting plot. There were a few bad actors though; the head security guard at the bank building may have turned in the worst performance I have seen in quite a few years.
Kristen Stewart is an amazing actress, and I see her as a young Jodie Foster. She is going to be a huge star! Corbin Bleu and Max Thierot were flawless in their roles as Maddy's best friends.
The critics of this film need to realize that most Americans are sick of the "Kill Bill" and "Lost in Translation" type movies. It seems the more gore or negative-thinking is thrown in to a movie, the more chances it has of being adored by the Hollywood elite. I think it is time to make movies that can rely on substance and acting. This movie is not in the same league as Tombstone or Lord of the Rings, but it definitely delivers everything it claims to deliver in the synopsis!
THAT'S WHY I GAVE IT A 5!
See ya next review!

Format: DVD
This movie is a heart warming story of a daughter trying to think her way out of her father's dismal medical condition, of which her mother is unable to afford the costly but highly effective surgery for him to recover. This movie has great kid actors/actresses in it and is a super movie to watch with your kids, I found it was highly emotional and inspiring. The movie is developed for kids above 7-8 years old, who will more than over look the morality of the bank robbery which has taken so many harsh digs throughout it's critics. If you can look beyond the robbery, the kids are learning the depths of their friendships, undeniable love for family, and also unconventional thinking that is sometimes called for in this sometimes red-taped, unsympathetic society. And for those concerned about the morality demonstrated within this film, the Vice President of the bank himself legitimizes the robbery committed by the children as a security precaution to prevent future instances and commends the children for their bravery. The daughter is given a cash reward by the bank for finding flaws in their highly sophisticated security system, enough money to afford the much needed surgery for her father. My kids loved it and so did I.
