Editorial Reviews

Eleven-year-old Toe Thompson is the designated punching bag for the bullies of the suburban community of Black Falls, where his and everyone else's parents work for Black Box Industries, makers of the do-it-all gadget that's sweeping the nation. But during a freak storm, a mysterious Rainbow Rock, which grants wishes to anyone who finds it, falls from the sky. Suddenly, the neighborhood that Toe already thinks is weird is about to get a lot weirder. As the Rainbow Rock ricochets around the town - from kid to kid and parent to parent - wishes come true and quickly turn the neighborhood upside down in a wild rampage of everything from tiny aliens to giant boogers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing good to say . . . August 5, 2012
By Sean D
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Bad story, bad script, bad dialog and bad acting. Movie budget was probably about a hundred bucks and they kept the producer happy by not going over. Unless you're doing dishes and need steady background noise, avoid this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Family Fun!!! September 16, 2009
Format:DVD
I thought this was a really good and very funny movie that the whole family will love! It has an awesome plot, funny situations, and lovable characters. The movie is told out of order in a series of 'short' episodes! In the town of Black Falls, all the adults work for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated. Toby Thompson is a lonely kid who gets picked on gets picked on by Mr. Black's kids, until Toby finds a Rainbow colored wishing rock that will grant his every wish. Toby is just one of the many kids who have found the rock, like Nose Noseworthy, Loogie, Cole, and Helvetica Black. When Mr. Black gets ahold of the rock, he uses it for world domination. Can the kids of Black Falls stop him before he becomes mad with power? I highly recommend SHORTS!!!

A cute family movie geared towards the younger generation! It was fun to watch with the children though.Mostly clean with a little crudeness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the whole family April 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This entertaining movie is about some kids who find a wishing rock--and then tussle with the moral implications of having that much power. Of course, grownups manage to mess things up along the way. With cameos from Leslie Mann, Jon Cryer, James Spader, and William H. Macy, along with some fun special effects, this was one we all enjoyed. We showed it for my third-grader's sleepover, and it was a hit with everybody...also, clean without being boring. My six year old liked it just as much.

Sorry, this movie was awful to sit through for adults. My 6 year old liked it and my 14 year old thought it was terrible. I think for kids under 7 it would be a good fit but do yourself a favor and put the movie on in another room for the kids and watch something else.

My daughter saw this movie in the theatre a few years ago and just wanted to see it again. Not as good as the SPY KIDS brand which Rodriguez directed as well.
