Product Description

Walt Disney Pictures presents the hilarious MAX KEEBLE'S BIG MOVE -- the laugh-out-loud, action-packed comedy your entire family will love. When Max, a much bullied 12-year-old student, finds out he's moving to a new city in one week, he decides he has nothing to lose and develops some very clever schemes to right all the wrongs done to him and his friends. After a week of mayhem, including outrageous pranks, stunts, inventive gadgets, and help from his friends, Max finds out the worst news ever -- he's not moving after all! And now going from underdog to top dog means facing up to the consequences of his actions and developing a whole new set of plans!|"The most challenging scene was the food fight," says director Tim Hill. "Anyone who saw what we needed to do predicted disaster." The filmmakers had to figure out how to get kids to move on a floor that was super slippery without getting hurt, "But everything was well planned, and we were very prepared for that scene when we came to it," Hill says.|Larry Miller, who plays Principal Jindraike in the film, says a great model for a school principal in a comedy is Jeffrey Jones in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF. "We've just taken things a bit further," he notes.|Another challenging scene for the crew was an animal stampede involving more than 40 animals, including dogs, ponies, emus, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, and two dozen birds!

Max Keeble's junior high career is off to an inauspicious start: one bully chucks him in a dumpster, another tormenter takes his friends' money, the ice cream truck guy is after him, and the self-serving principal is after everyone who stands in the way of his budget-draining football field plans. But his family's sudden plans to relocate give him the moxie to stand up to his foes in a big way. This kid revenge fantasy results in gags like a squirrel in the principal's pants and a cafeteria-wide food fight. Of course, Max (Alex D. Linz) doesn't move, forcing him to take responsibility for his actions, or this wouldn't be a Disney film. The broad humor is clearly meant for preteens, but crude jokes, bullying, and sexual innuendo (thus the PG rating) make it inappropriate for younger kids, leaving it for the narrow age range of about 8 to 12. --Kimberly Heinrichs

My whole family saw this movie and we all loved it, so I never understood why it was a box office bomb! Maybee it's because everyone compared it to "The Princess Diaries" wich was in theaters 2 months before "Max". It perfectly portrays public middle school! It's Max's first day of Junior High School and has plans to make this year better than last. But upon arrival, he finds he is the target of the school bully, teachers are mean, and the girl of his dreams dosen't even know he's alive. But when his dad says they're moving, he seeks revenge on them all, including the evil ice cream man! His skeems to get back at everyone are hilarious! And it gets even better when he finds out he's not moving! There are even cameo's by the child rapper, Little Romeo, and pop sensation, Myra, who's hit "Miracles Happen" was featured in "The Princess Diaries"! Your whole family will love it!

Move over, Citizen Kane. Here comes Max Keeble and his big move. Lets get one thing straight. If you don't like movies that will blow you away with intense action, have you rolling on the floor with comedy, and bring you to tears with an amazingly written plot to rival those of Shakespeare, then by all means, avoid this movie. If you and your family want to enjoy the greatest cinematic experience ever created, click "add to cart", have it shipped overnight, and be prepared to be thoroughly enlightened by the epic performances of Alex Linz, Jamie Kennedy, and a younger but far more hilariously obese Josh Peck. If you don't think this is the best movie ever made, I will come to your house and fight you. No lie.

Daughter loves it because its funny and interesting. Its kind of like real middle school. Its about a boy who finds out he's going to move so he decides to become a legendary pranker before he has to leave. Then something unexpected happens.

This was about my favorite movie as a kid, and although I understand some of the reasons for not liking it, but I just can't help loving the outrageous schemes and situations they get themselves in! Plus, in my opinion, the child acting is pretty good, and the adult acting is campy as ever. ps. Who would've thought that the awkward redhead bully with the black nail polish (that I kinda had a crush on) would become my favorite actor? Not me.

Disney's effort based on the Home Alone and Dennis the Menace films falls short. The pranks that Max Keeble does on the bullies and ice cream man just aren't that funny. Probably will amuse the younger crowd but that's it.

Having been in grade school a few years back, I remember the bullies and life as a short, thin kid: Max Keeble had my revenge!

"Max Keeble's Big Move" enjoys the ingenuity of "Home Alone" for creating masterful pranks, though not as slap-stick. Not quite in the "Ferris Bueller" category, but appropriate for grade school kids.

The message delivered will please parents, and remind them of how hard being in school can be. When Max comes to grips with his mistakes, he takes responsibility. And he discovers that friendship is a great foundation for love.

You won't need Dolby Sound for this one. Be sure to invite a bunch of kids who will hoot and holler through the gags.

I fully recommend "Max Keeble's Big Move."

I read alot of bad reveiws when this movie was just released but Im glad I diden't pay to much attention to them.I went and saw this movie with these little kids(7 and 9yr olds)I babysit.I wasent expecting much out of it considering it was aimed for the pre-teens.But as I was watching it I noticed how much I could relate to the charaters.I guess becuase it reminded me of Junior High that I left just 3 years ago.Max the short kid who wants his 7th grade year to be where he can finally be cool.His first day is a nightmare he gets,chased by the "evil ice cream man", beat up by Troy McGinty(my favorite character)a punk type bully who writes names of his victims on his shirt daily,Dobbs a 12year old stock broker steals Max's lunch money(I found one of the funniest charaters),and the wannabe superintentant principal keeps a grudge against Max becuase he distrupted the school assembly.When Max finds out he's moving Max plans to get back at all the people that pushed him and his friends around.I think all the actors did a belivable job-esspeacilly Alex D.Linz who plays Max.His acting did remind me of Fred Savage of the Wonder Years for some reason-his movements or his voice or somthing.But he is a great young actor.And it is a HUGE step up from that movie that should have never been made "Home Alone 3".This is not your adverage Disney movie(even if it is a little predictable)-In fact it reminded me a tad of that old Nickelodeon show Pete and Pete.I dont know who I would recomend this too.Im 17 and I love this movie to peices.I relized there is alot of comparison to the Princess Diaries and Max Keeble but there about differant things.Princess Diaries wasent as nearly as funny or entertaining as this.All and all I think you should let your pre-teens see this movie at least once.

I have heard of movies get rated for language, humor, sexuality, and nuity. But before this movie, I have never heard of a movie getting rated for some bullying. And that is one of the reasons why Max Keeble's Big Move got rated PG. The other is Crude Humor. It is about a boy starting junior high school. As the movie opens, Max Keeble (Alex D. Linz) is starting junior high school. And Max also delievers the papers when he is not in school. His Dad (Robert Carradine) sometimes has to wear customs to work. And the first time we see him in the movie, he wears a lobster custom. His best friends are Meagn (Zena Grey) and Robert (Josh Peck), but is nickname is Robe. But some bad news happens, first the near by animal shelter is being closed down, to make way from the junior high school's football stadium. The Princpal (Larry Miller) is closing down the shelter. His family has to move to Chicago. And also, the evil ice cream man (Jaime Kenndy) is after him. So Max decides to get revenge on the bullies. Including the student bullies, Troy McGinty (Noel Fishen) and Dobbs (Orlando Brown). McGinty hates McGoggles the frog, and wears shirts with the names of his victims. And Dobbs was once a millonaire, but has gone broke. And now steals the other students lucnch money, and even chargers to use the bathrooms. This is a great movie to watch with the family, even on a rainy night/afternoon/morning. If you love comedy movies, this is one you have to watch. And if you don't like comdy movies, then please don't bother to view this film.
